    Highly oxygen-deficient Li4Ti5O12 with conformal amorphous-carbon displays excellent electrochemical performance due to the highlighted effects of interfacial modifications. The proposed synthesis method is a one-pot, facile, and extremely inexpensive strategy.

  2. Assessment of Self-Assembled Monolayers as High-Performance Thermal Interface Materials

    Yanlei Wang, Yu Cao, Ke Zhou and Zhiping Xu

    The performance of self-assembled alkane monolayers as the thermal interface material is assessed via molecular simulations, which demonstrate high thermal transparency and structural flexibility, and tunablity through the chain length, packing density, and deformation.

  3. Designing Liquid Metal Interfaces to Enable Next Generation Flexible and Reconfigurable Electronics

    Nahid Ilyas, Alexander Cook and Christopher E. Tabor

    Version of Record online: 22 MAY 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/admi.201700141

    A novel approach to controlling the surface of gallium liquid metal alloys through organic ligands which modify the native oxide is presented. Modification of the liquid metal's surface energy (illustrated via a change in water contact angle in the figure), work function, and reduced chemical alloying with solid metal electrodes is demonstrated.

  4. High Specific and Mass Activity for the Oxygen Reduction Reaction for Thin Film Catalysts of Sputtered Pt3Y

    Niklas Lindahl, Eleonora Zamburlini, Ligang Feng, Henrik Grönbeck, Maria Escudero-Escribano, Ifan E. L. Stephens, Ib Chorkendorff, Christoph Langhammer and Björn Wickman

    Sputtered thin films of platinum alloyed with yttrium have activities an order of magnitude higher than pure platinum for the oxygen reduction reaction. The high activity is caused by strain in the observed platinum overlayer. The developed deposition method and thin film materials improve possibilities for a commercial breakthrough of fuel cells.

  5. A Mixed-Metal Oxides/Graphitic Carbon Nitride: High Visible Light Photocatalytic Activity for Efficient Mineralization of Rhodamine B

    Bui The Huy, Chu Thi Bich Thao, Van-Duong Dao, Nguyen Thi Kim Phuong and Yong-Ill Lee

    Version of Record online: 19 MAY 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/admi.201700128

    Novel mixed-metal oxides/graphitic carbon nitride composites that are coupled using co-precipitation exhibit excellent photocatalytic activity to Rhodamine B. The mechanism for visible light photocatalytic mineralization of prepared sample is proposed. The prepared sample exhibits high chemical stability and efficiency as photocatalyst for environmental remediation.
