A metal-free polymeric photocatalyst for hydrogen production from water under visible light.
It is shown that an abundant material, polymeric carbon nitride, can produce hydrogen from water under visible-light irradiation in the presence of a sacrificial donor. Expand
Effect of biochar amendment on soil carbon balance and soil microbial activity
Abstract We investigated the behavior of biochars in arable and forest soil in a greenhouse experiment in order to prove that these amendments can increase carbon storage in soils. Two qualities of… Expand

It will be demonstrated that the HTC process can rationally design a rich family of carbonaceous and hybrid functional carbon materials with important applications in a sustainable fashion. Expand
Back in the black: hydrothermal carbonization of plant material as an efficient chemical process to treat the CO2 problem?
A chemical process, hydrothermal carbonization (HTC) of low value biomass, is discussed as a tool for the sequestration of atmospheric CO2. Via the available biomass, CO2 can be transformed into an… Expand
Porous, covalent triazine-based frameworks prepared by ionothermal synthesis.
Hydrothermal carbon from biomass : a comparison of the local structure from poly- to monosaccharides and pentoses/hexoses.
Carbon particles are synthesized under hydrothermal conditions using different biomass (glucose, xylose, maltose, sucrose, amylopectin, starch) and biomass derivates… Expand
Graphitic carbon nitride materials: variation of structure and morphology and their use as metal-free catalysts
Graphitic carbon nitride, g-C3N4, can be made by polymerization of cyanamide, dicyandiamide or melamine. Depending on reaction conditions, different materials with different degrees of condensation,… Expand
A Direct Synthesis of Mesoporous Carbons with Bicontinuous Pore Morphology from Crude Plant Material by Hydrothermal Carbonization
Hydrothermal carbonization is a convenient way to convert biomass at rather moderate conditions into carbonaceous nanostructures, here, mesoporous network structures. A structural view on the micro-… Expand
Graphitic Carbon Nitride Materials: Variation of Structure and Morphology and Their Use as Metal-Free Catalysts
Mesocrystals: inorganic superstructures made by highly parallel crystallization and controlled alignment.
Mesocrystals are exiting examples of nonclassical crystallization, which does not proceed through ion-by-ion attachment, but by a modular nanobuilding-block route, which makes crystallization more independent of ion products or molecular solubility, it occurs without pH or osmotic pressure changes, and opens new strategies for crystal morphogenesis.
