A lithium–oxygen battery based on lithium superoxide

A lithium–oxygen battery based on lithium superoxide

Batteries based on sodium superoxide and on potassium superoxide have recently been reported1, 2, 3. However, there have been no reports of a battery based on lithium superoxide (LiO2), despite much research4, 5, 6, 7, 8 into the lithium–oxygen (Li–O2) battery because...
Selective butadiene hydrogenation by Pd nanoparticles

Selective butadiene hydrogenation by Pd nanoparticles

Partial hydrogenation of dienes and alkynes is a reaction of great industrial importance. Butadiene is an impurity in C4 alkenes produced by cracking and butane/butadiene mixtures have to be purified before butene transformations, such as polymerization or alkylation...
