Abstract

original image

A blaze of chirality The cover picture shows a phase-transfer featured imidazolium-based organic-inorganic hybrid silica as an efficient heterogeneous catalyst for promoting the highly enantioselective Michael addition of malonates to nitrostyrenes. In their Full Paper on p. 1784 ff., G. Liu, W. Wang et al. reveal how their hybridized catalyst is exceptionally stable and can be recovered and recycled easily without loss of activity or selectivity.
