    A lettuce-like, hierarchically porous catalyst composed of iron carbide encased in nitrogen doped carbon is controllably synthesized using two-step strategy, which displays excellently active towards ORR in both alkaline and acidic media.

  2. Hydrodeoxygenation of Phenols to Form Cyclohexanes Catalyzed by Pt/H-beta in Ester Solvents under Mild Conditions (pages 4226–4229)

    Dr. Hidetoshi Ohta, Weihu Kong, Kentaro Yamamoto and Dr. Minoru Hayashi

    Version of Record online: 23 MAY 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/slct.201700696

    A novel catalyst system consisting of Pt/H-beta and ester solvents for hydrodeoxygenation of phenols into cyclohexanes under mild conditions was developed. The reaction proceeded under ambient H2 pressure at 85–110 °C.

  3. Co-N-C Catalysts Synthesized viaPyrolyzing the Ionic Liquids Solution Dissolved with Casein and Cobalt Porphyrin for Ethylbenzene Oxidation (pages 4255–4260)

    Cobalt-coordinated N-doped carbon (Co-N−C)was synthesized via pyrolyzing a special homogenous solution, namely the mixture of casein and cobalt porphyrin dissolved in 1-butyl-3-methyllimidazolium chloride ionic liquid.The method above can effectively overcome the disadvantage of traditional methods and get well-dispersed Co-N−C catalyst with small particle size (3∼8 nm). Under the promotion of Co-Nx, Co-N−C showed remarkable catalytic activity and stability in oxidation of ethylbenzene.

  4. N/Al-Incorporated TiO2Nanocompositesfor Improved Device Performance of aDye-Sensitized Solar Cell (pages 4267–4276)

    Neetu, Ishwar C. Maurya, Shalini Singh, Arun K. Gupta, Dr. Pankaj Srivastava and Prof. Lal Bahadur

    Version of Record online: 23 MAY 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/slct.201700550

    Al/N co-doped TiO2 nano-composite anchored with N719 dye is used for photoanode application in DSSC. An overall current conversion efficiency 6.24 %, which is much improved compared to that of un-modified TiO2 (1.69 %) under 100 mW/cm2 light irradiation could be achieved, that is attributed to reduced band-gap and particle size, improved dye loading, low recombination and greater electron life time.

  5. [3+2] Cycloaddition of 3-Diazooxindole with Arynes for the Synthesis of Spiro[indazole-3,3′-indolin]-2′-ones (pages 4290–4293)

    An intermolecular cycloaddition between 3-diazooxindoles and arynes has been developed to produce a novel series of spiro[indazole-3,3′-indolin]-2′-one derivatives in good yields under mild reaction conditions.
