The Cover Feature shows an unprecedented generation of highly polarized lithium phosphides (LiPR2) through direct selective deprotonation of secondary phosphines (HPR2) in the biodegradable choline chloride/glycerol eutectic mixture, at ambient temperature and under aerobic conditions, and their chemoselective addition to aldehydes or epoxides. Mor...
An eco‐friendly and sustainable salt‐templating approach is proposed for the production of anode materials with a 3D sponge‐like structure for sodium‐ion capacitors using gluconic acid as carbon precursor and sodium carbonate as water‐removable template. The optimized carbon material combines porous thin walls that provide short diffusional paths,...
Augmented reality (AR) is a mixed technology that superimposes three-dimensional (3D) digital data onto an image of reality. This technology enables users to represent and manipulate 3D chemical structures. In spite of its potential, the use of these tools in chemistry is still scarce. The aim of this work is to identify the real situation of AR de...
The Front Cover illustrates the use of monodisperse, highly porous carbon nanoparticles derived from polypyrrole as the electrode material in high‐power supercapacitors. The cells, constructed using practical mass loadings, showed a fast response in different electrolyte systems. More information can be found in the Article by N. Díez and co‐worker...
Invited for this month's cover picture is the group of Dr. Noel Díez. The Front Cover illustrates the use of monodisperse, highly porous carbon nanoparticles derived from polypyrrole as the electrode material in high power supercapacitors. The highly porous nanoparticles were employed to construct supercapacitors with practical mass loadings that s...
Atomic/molecular visualization for human sight is usually generated by a software that reproduces a 3D reality on a 2D screen. Although Virtual Reality (VR) software was originally developed for the gaming industry, now it is used in academia for chemistry teaching. This work reviews the scientific literature on 3D visualization in stereoscopic vis...
Highly porous carbon nanoparticles are very suitable materials for supercapacitor electrodes due to their combination of large surface area for ion adsorption and short pathways for fast ion diffusion. Herein we describe the synthesis of highly porous carbon nanospheres (d = 90 nm) by a simple strategy that involves the preparation of monodisperse...
Highly polarized lithium phosphides (LiPR2) have been synthesized, for the first time, in Deep Eutectic Solvents (DESs) as sustainable reaction media, at room temperature and in the absence of protecting atmosphere, through direct deprotonation of both aliphatic and aromatic secondary phosphines (HPR2) by n‐BuLi. The subsequent addition of in‐situ...
