Heteroatom-doped graphene as electrocatalysts for air cathodes

Huijuan Cui, Zhen Zhou* and Dianzeng Jia*  

Mater. Horiz., 2017, 4, 7-19 
DOI: 10.1039/C6MH00358C 

Heteroatom doped graphene as an electrocatalyst for air cathodes is discussed to promote the development of devices with high energy density.

Advancements in rationally designed PGM-free fuel cell catalysts derived from metal–organic frameworks

Heather M. Barkholtz and Di-Jia Liu*  

Mater. Horiz., 2017, 4, 20-37 
DOI: 10.1039/C6MH00344C 

A comprehensive review revealed metal–organic frameworks as promising precursors for preparing highly active PGM-free electro-catalysts for oxygen reduction reaction.

Recent developments in self-oscillating polymeric systems as smart materials: from polymers to bulk hydrogels

Youn Soo Kim, Ryota Tamate, Aya Mizutani Akimoto and Ryo Yoshida*  

Mater. Horiz., 2017, 4, 38-54 
DOI: 10.1039/C6MH00435K 

As novel functional materials, we developed self-oscillating polymeric materials composed of synthetic polymers coupled with an oscillating chemical reaction, the so-called Belousov–Zhabotinsky (BZ) reaction.


Metal–organic frameworks: a novel host platform for enzymatic catalysis and detection

Effrosyni Gkaniatsou, Clémence Sicard*, Rémy Ricoux, Jean-Pierre Mahy, Nathalie Steunou* and Christian Serre 

Mater. Horiz., 2017, 4, 55-63 
DOI: 10.1039/C6MH00312E 

This minireview deals with the recent advances on the synthetic strategies for the immobilization of enzymes in metal–organic frameworks.


Functional conductive nanomaterials via polymerisation in nano-channels: PEDOT in a MOF

Tiesheng Wang, Meisam Farajollahi, Sebastian Henke, Tongtong Zhu, Sneha R. Bajpe, Shijing Sun, Jonathan S. Barnard, June Sang Lee, John D. W. Madden, Anthony K. Cheetham and Stoyan K. Smoukov*  

Mater. Horiz., 2017, 4, 64-71 
DOI: 10.1039/C6MH00230G 
From themed collection In celebration of Tony Cheetham’s 70th birthday

Poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene) (PEDOT) is formed inside a metal–organic framework (MOF). MOF removal leads to sub-millimetre structures of the nanostructured conducting polymer.

Ultrafast colorimetric humidity-sensitive polyelectrolyte coating for touchless control

Li Yu, Haolan Xu, Tanya M. Monro, David G. Lancaster, Yi Xie, Hongbo Zeng, George Y. Chen* and Xiaokong Liu*

Mater. Horiz., 2017, 4, 72-82 
DOI: 10.1039/C6MH00317F

A touchless control system that can be operated by a humidity signal is developed based on colorimetric humidity-sensitive materials.

Efficient triplet–triplet annihilation upconversion in binary crystalline solids fabricated via solution casting and operated in air

Kenji Kamada*, Yusuke Sakagami, Toshiko Mizokuro, Yutaka Fujiwara, Kenji Kobayashi*, Kaishi Narushima, Shuzo Hirata and Martin Vacha  

Mater. Horiz., 2017, 4, 83-87 
DOI: 10.1039/C6MH00413J 

Binary crystalline solids via solution casting under rapid drying conditions were found to show efficient triplet–triplet annihilation upconversion by suppressing the segregation of the components.

Quaternisation-polymerized N-type polyelectrolytes: synthesis, characterisation and application in high-performance polymer solar cells

Zhicheng Hu, Rongguo Xu, Sheng Dong, Kai Lin, Jinju Liu, Fei Huang* and Yong Cao  

Mater. Horiz., 2017, 4, 88-97 
DOI: 10.1039/C6MH00434B 

We design and synthesize a series of high-mobility n-type polyelectrolytes with different anions via quaternisation polymerisation, which can be utilized as thickness-insensitive electron-transporting materials for polymer solar cells.
