Molybdenum carries the load The cover picture shows the reaction of CS2 and H2 over supported MoS2-type catalysts as a novel route for the synthesis of methanethiol, an important raw material in chemical industry. In their Full Paper on page 3249 ff., J. A. Lercher and co-workers describe the mechanism and kinetics of the reaction emphasizing the effect of Ni, Co, or K on the rates of hydrogenation and CS bond cleavage on MoS2. Thus, while aiming for the production of methanethiol with high rates and selectivity, the study also contributes to the understanding of the promotion of MoS2.
