Abstract

Invited for this month′s cover are the groups of Prof. Jinzhu Chen and Prof. Longlong Ma from the Guangzhou Institute of Energy Conversion, Chinese Academy of Sciences. The image shows a bifunctional stabilizing mechanism of the composite support PANI/CNT on palladium nanoparticles in the catalyst Pd–PANI/CNT, and how the PANI/CNT can play a role in controlling the conversion and selectivity in the direct hydrogenation of phenol to cyclohexanone.
