Abstract

original image

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 C[BOND]S 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.
