VIP: Non-Invasive Probing of Nanoparticle Electrostatics

Dr. Kristina Tschulik, Dr. Wei Cheng, Dr. Christopher Batchelor-McAuley, Stuart Murphy, Dr. Dario Omanović and Prof. Dr. Richard G. Compton

Non-Invasive Probing of Nanoparticle ElectrostaticsNot what you might think: A new and non-invasive technique to probe the electrostatic interaction between surface-charged nanoparticles and a charged metal/solution interface shows that electrostatic effects are insignificant in all but very dilute electrolytes.

    Fine tuning: The combined effects of solution conditions and macrocyclic structure determine the redox behavior of free-base porphyrins in acidic nonaqueous media. Each porphyrin undergoes two reductions at the π-ring system, which occur in well-separated or overlapping electron-transfer steps at potentials between 0.00 and −1.36 V versus a saturated calomel electrode.

    Rechargeable Metal–Air Proton-Exchange Membrane Batteries for Renewable Energy Storage

    Dr. Masahiro Nagao, Kazuyo Kobayashi, Yuta Yamamoto, Togo Yamaguchi, Akihide Oogushi and Prof. Takashi Hibino

    Article first published online: 25 NOV 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/celc.201500473

    Positive exchange: A proton-exchange membrane fuel cell is integrated with active anode materials including vanadium and tin ions, for which redox reactions occur at more positive potentials than for hydrogen reduction. These redox couples are demonstrated to function as promising energy-storage media with excellent reversibility and good cyclability.

    Frickin’ lasers! Dye-sensitized and perovskite solar cells have seen tremendous efforts in the design and implementation of fabrication techniques, which can guarantee high performance as well as scalability, precision, and versatility over large areas; prominent amongst these is laser processing. Concepts are introduced and the available literature is reviewed, pertaining to the effective utilization of laser systems applied to these photovoltaic technologies.
