  1. Au–Co3O4/C as an Efficient Electrocatalyst for the Oxygen Evolution Reaction

    Zhuo-ying Li, Kai-hang Ye, Qi-sui Zhong, Chan-juan Zhang, Shu-ting Shi and Dr. Chang-wei Xu

    Article first published online: 28 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201402136

    What a bind! The electron binding energy of Co 2p shows a positive shift of about 0.89 eV after loading with Au (see figure). Such a big shift in binding energy promotes the formation of CoIV and increases the population of active centers on the catalyst surface. Gold, a highly electronegative metal, acts as an electron adsorbate, which facilitates the deprotonation of the OOH species by an electron inductive effect.

  2. Lithium–Air Oxygen Shuttle Battery with a ZrO2-Based Ion-Conducting Oxide Electrolyte

    Dr. Atsushi Inoishi, Maki Matsuka, Prof. Takaaki Sakai, Dr. Young-Wan Ju, Prof. Shintaro Ida and Prof. Tatsumi Ishihara

    Article first published online: 28 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201402041

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    Full of hot air! A lithium–air cell based on the concept of an “oxygen shuttle” in a calcium-stabilized ZrO2 (CSZ) electrolyte is described. The observed open-circuit voltage and discharge capacity are 1.81 V and 2179 mAh per gram of Li, respectively, at 1073 K (see picture). The observed overpotential in the anode is similar to that in a Mg–air cell reported previously, and much smaller than that of a H2–air fuel cell.

  3. PEG600-Carboxylates as Efficient Reusable Reaction Media and Acylating Agents for the Resolution of sec-Alcohols

    Dr. Carlos M. Monteiro, Dr. Nuno M. T. Lourenço, Dr. Frederico C. Ferreira and Prof. Dr. Carlos A. M. Afonso

    Article first published online: 28 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201402049

    Simple and common: We describe a simple, attractive, and reusable methodology for one-pot resolution/separation of free sec-alcohols by the combination of sustainable acylating agents/solvents (polyethylene glycol derivatives) and a common biocatalyst (Candida antarctica lipase B) under irreversible conditions, and a separation process by extraction or distillation (see figure).

  4. Next-Generation, High-Energy-Density Redox Flow Batteries

    Qizhao Huang and Dr. Qing Wang

    Article first published online: 25 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201402099

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    Go with the flow: The latest advances in redox flow battery (RFB) related technologies are highlighted in the context of a few decades of development. The technology has mainly advanced through a process of enlarging the electrochemical window by using organic solvents and replacing liquid electrolytes with solid or semisolid materials (see picture).

  5. Synthesis of Bright Alkenyl-1H-1,2,4-triazoles: A Theoretical and Photophysical Study

    Dr. Cristina Cebrián, Dr. Juan de Mata Muñoz, Dr. Cristian Alejandro Strassert, Dr. Pilar Prieto, Prof. Ángel Díaz-Ortiz, Prof. Luisa De Cola and Prof. Antonio de la Hoz

    Article first published online: 23 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201402153

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    Bright 1H-1,2,4-triazoles: A series of alkenyl-1H-1,2,4-triazoles has been synthesized by the eco-friendly Hiyama coupling under microwave irradiation (see figure). The compounds are good blue emitters, with their photophysical properties dependent on the substituent pattern. The emission was modeled computationally, which resulted in a predictive method that could be used for the a priori evaluation of the emissive properties from new related compounds.
