Why can CuInSe2 be readily equilibrium-doped n-type but the wider-gap CuGaSe2 cannot?
The wider-gap members of a semiconductor series such as diamond→Si→Ge or AlN→GaN→InN often cannot be doped n-type at equilibrium. We study theoretically if this is the case in the chalcopyrite familyExpand

WOx domain size, acid properties and mechanistic aspects of glycerol hydrogenolysis over Pt/WOx/ZrO2
Abstract Supported WOx catalysts are widely investigated in glycerol hydrogenolysis for their high selectivity to 1,3-propanediol (1,3-PDO). The high performance is often related to surface BronstedExpand

Synthesis of ethanol via syngas on Cu/SiO2 catalysts with balanced Cu0-Cu+ sites.
This paper describes an emerging synthetic route for the production of ethanol (with a yield of ~83%) via syngas using Cu/SiO(2) catalysts. The remarkable stability and efficiency of the catalystsExpand

Bioinspired polyene cyclization promoted by intermolecular chiral acetal-SnCl4 or chiral N-acetal-TiCl4: investigation of the mechanism and identification of the key intermediates.
New strategies using chiral acetal or chiral mixed-acetal in the presence of Lewis acids (SnCl4 or TiCl4) to promote polyene cyclization reaction are described. Acetal-promoted andExpand

Indium tribromide-promoted arene-terminated epoxy olefin cyclization.
An arene-terminated epoxy olefin cyclization was promoted by a water-tolerant Lewis acid to give tri- and tetracyclic 3beta-hydroxy terpenoids and steroid derivatives in 57 and 37% yields,Expand
