Mild, efficient and general: Titania decorated with nanometer-sized gold particles acts as an efficient catalyst for the selective hydration of a wide range of chemically diverse nitriles into valuable amides in neutral water, under mild atmospheric conditions (see image). The process shows promise for a facile and direct one-pot synthesis of ε-caprolactam, an industrially important molecule, starting from 6-aminocapronitrile.
