  • Publication number: 20210402380
    Abstract: Nature is capable of storing solar energy in chemical bonds via photosynthesis through a series of C—C, C—O and C—N bond-forming reactions starting from CO2 and light. Direct capture of solar energy for organic synthesis is a promising approach. Lead (Pb)-halide perovskite solar cells reach 24.2% power conversion efficiency, rendering perovskite a unique type material for solar energy capture. We show that photophysical properties of perovskites is useful in photoredox organic synthesis. Because the key aspects of these two applications are both relying on charge separation and transfer. Here we demonstrated that perovskites nanocrystals are exceptional candidates as photocatalysts for fundamental organic reactions, i.e. C—C, C—N and C—O bond-formations. Stability of CsPbBr3 in organic solvents and ease-of-tuning their bandedges garner perovskite a wider scope of organic substrate activations.

  • Publication number: 20210381868
    Abstract: A method is disclosed for determining flow measurement values of a Coriolis mass flowmeter in the presence of a two-phase flow of a two-phase medium having a gas phase and the subsequent presence of a single-phase flow of a single-phase medium not having a gas phase. The method includes: detecting a start time of a two-phase measurement interval at an onset of the two-phase flow; detecting an end time of the two-phase measurement interval at an end of the presence of the two-phase flow; determining and at least partially storing two-phase flow measurement values of the two-phase flow; determining at least one state variable of the single-phase medium; determining subsequently corrected two-phase flow measurement values as at least indirect input variables of a correction calculation; and outputting the corrected two-phase flow measurement values as individual values or as part of a cumulative flow measurement value.
