Abstract

original image

The back cover picture shows how nitrogen-doped carbon nanotube catalysts afford excellent reactivity for acetylene hydrochlorination. The research team led by Professor Fei Wei at Tsinghua University and Prof. Dang Sheng Su at the Institute of Metal Research found green alternative mercury-free catalysts for hydrohalogenation. The quaternary nitrogen species exhibiting positive charges played a role analogous to metal cation complexes with vacancies and increased the probability of acetylene chemisorption and formation of acetylene-pseudo-metal complexes. More details can be found in the Communication by Zhou et al. on page 723 (DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201300793).
