Modeling carbon: Thanks to model molecules, the carbon-catalyzed reduction of nitrobenzene is mimicked. The role of different oxygen functional groups on a carbon catalyst is studied, and the carbonyl and hydroxyl groups seem to be the most important moieties, which may be ascribed to their ability to activate hydrazine. The reaction occurs more likely through a direct route, during which nitrosobenzene may also be converted directly into aniline.
