Article
As one of the most successful cathode materials, LiNi1-y-zMnyCozO2 (NMC) has become the preferred choice for automotive lithium-ion batteries (LIBs). Currently, its lithium source, LiOH, is not based on primary lithium salts and the route is unsustainable due to the large resource losses and high carbon footprint. In this study, a desirable alterna...
Article
Interests on lithium extraction from the Chinese salt-lake brines have regained momentum due to the growing demand of lithium for application in electric vehicles. Characterized by a high Mg²⁺/Li⁺ ratio (MLR), the Chinese salt-lake brine has troubled scientists and engineers for decades. Recent progress has shown significant advantages of membrane...
Article
The ability of extracting/inserting more than one Li per formula has made Li-rich layered oxides (LLO) one of the most promising cathode materials. However, irreversible transformations triggered by over-delithiation such as phase transitions, oxygen release and Jahn-Teller effects of Mn3+ have limited its practical application. In this work, the i...
Article
Optically pure amino alcohols are widely used as the essential building blocks for catalysts and auxiliaries in asymmetric synthesis, especially in pharmaceuticals. The catalytic hydrogenation has been regarded as the most effective route to produce chiral amino alcohols, but it is still unsatisfactory, which is mainly manifested in the involvement...

Aluminum electrode foils are the most essential components inside electrolytic capacitors, which are widely used in diverse electronic systems. The production involves the usage of various chemicals, and it generates a huge amount of exhausted bath solution consisting of highly-concentrated ammonium adipate and trace Cl⁻ impurity. The loss of these...

For industries around the world, the hydrometallurgical roast–leach–electrowin process is the most common means of producing zinc metal. Dechlorination from the highly-concentrated zinc sulfate electrolyte is of vital importance to the zinc industry. In a recently published work, we innovatively employed diffusion dialysis (DD) to selectively remov...
Article
Zinc metal is mainly produced by a hydrometallurgical process, in which zinc electrolyte is recirculated, and impurities especially halides are accumulated then, which have dreadful impacts on the process and product. Until now numerous efforts have been made to remove halides from the electrolyte, but none of them are fully satisfying, and it is s...
Article
Abstract Currently nanofiltration predominates the membrane application of dye desalting and purification, and it is very effective to produce low-salt dye from raw dye with high inorganic salt impurities. However it is difficult and costly to produce dye products with ultralow impurities, because the desalting performance decreases proportionally...
Article
Well defined gold embedded maghemite hybrid nanowires are synthesized, and their structures are fully characterized. They are composed of porous γ-Fe2O3 shells and tiny embedment of gold nanoparticles (3-10 nm), which is novel and very different from the conventional "surface decoration" configuration. These hybrid nanowires are produced by dealloy...

Ultra-high-basicity polyaluminum, an important aluminum industrial product, is manufactured by the oxidation of metallic Al with acids. The process is not economically and chemically efficient because the aluminum atoms were reduced first from alumina to aluminum metal, and then oxidized again to get the polyaluminum. In this work, an integrated sy...
Article
An integrated electrolysis system was built to synthesize polyaluminum chloride with ultra high-basicity and even pure Al13. The system converts AlCl3 solution from aluminum electrode foil industry waste to Al13 chloride directly with reasonable cost, typically $1.09 per kilogram as Al2(OH)5Cl·2H2O at 25 °C. Electrolyte temperature and current dens...
Article
An electrochemical sensor was constructed via self-assembly of chiral metal complexes Λ-[Os(phen)3(ClO4)2] on reduced graphene oxide (rGO) sheet. Cyclic voltammetry and differential pulse voltammetry illustrate that the sensor could detect 1,1′-2-binaphthol lower than 10 μM. The response current of S-1,1′-2-binaphthol is 1.4 times higher than that...
Article
Stereoisomerism is a fundamental chemistry issue and has been intensively investigated because of its importance in organic chemistry, biology, and pharmacology. Molecules with freely rotatable single bonds have many interconvertable conformers. Herein, we report the surface-adsorption-induced conformer resolution by employing azobenzene-3,3-dicarb...
