Dr. Takato Mitsudome, Dr. Yusuke Mikami, Motoshi Matoba, Dr. Tomoo Mizugaki, Prof. Dr. Koichiro Jitsukawa and Prof. Dr. Kiyotomi Kaneda Back Cover: Design of a Silver–Cerium Dioxide Core–Shell Nanocomposite Catalyst for Chemoselective Reduction Reactions (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 1/2012) Angewandte Chemie International Edition 51
The chemoselective reduction of epoxides to the corresponding alkenes occurs in the presence of an Ag–CeO2 nanoparticle core–shell nanocomposite (AgNPs@CeO2, represented as the moon orbiting the earth) and H2. In their Communication on page 136 ff., K. Kaneda and co-workers report how the chemoselective reaction, which can also be applied to nitrostyrenes, proceeds more efficiently with AgNPs@CeO2 than with conventional oxide-supported metal nanoparticles.
