Issue 5

Oxygen Reactions

A sequential two-step strategy is developed by Steven L. Suib and co-workers, in article number 1501966, to dope sulfur into carbon nanotube–graphene nanolobes (S,S’-CNT1000°C) to control the active-sites of metal-free catalysts. This strategy enhanced the oxygen evolution reaction better than state-of-art catalysts. This allows the S,S’-CNT1000°C to be a potential-candidate for next-generation metal-free regenerative-fuel cells. Workers in the cover image are doping carbon-nanotubes with sulfur that creates active-sites (raw materials) for the oxygen factory.

Issue 6

Electrode Materials

In article number 1501929, Jia Xie, Lina Zhang, and co-workers present the construction of a hierarchical N/S-codoped carbon anode via a cost-effective and “green” route by pyrolyzing the cellulose/polyaniline composite microspheres. The micro-nanometer and atomic-level structure, designed via fabrication of the cellulose porous microspheres and N/S heteroatoms co-doping, ensures the carbon electrode an excellent rate capability and ultra-long cycle life in sodium-ion batteries, making it highly promising for large-scale energy storage applications.
