[Co(C2B9H11)2]− was tested, for the first time, as efficient photoredox catalysts in the oxidation of aromatic and aliphatic alcohols in water. Molecules, 2020, 25, 2814.
The workshop programme includes talks about materials science in many different fields: biomedicine, for fuel cell applications, catalysis, complex materials or materails for aerospace. You can find the list of invited speakers here, including ICMAB researcher Clara Viñas.
We report how m-carborane platform enhances the quantum efficiency of the anthracene in solution, without losing the emission properties in the aggregate state. Check out all details at Inorganic Chemistry Frontiers.
Tuning both the photoluminescence and conductive properties of new COP materials Prof. Viñas’s demonstrated a simple and efficient way to achieve tuning by focusing on the accompanying cations of the doping anions, which determine the stoichiometries of the COPs that, … Continue reading
We have discovered a water stable metal-organic framework (MOF) that allows for the separation of butanol from acetone-butanol-ethanol (ABE) mixtures that are extracted from the fermentation process of biomass feedstock, as part of the standard industrial process to produce biofuels.
