    A “healthy” photocatalyst: Internal alkynes are chemoselectively and diastereoselectively hydrogenated to the corresponding cis-alkenes in alcoholic suspensions of a copper-loaded TiO2 photocatalyst without the use of additives and poisons often used in the case of Lindlar's catalyst.

    One way or another: A novel method for the atom-economic addition of CS2 to terminal and internal epoxides based on lithium tert-butoxide as the catalyst is developed. This reaction proceeds regio- and stereoselectively. Experimental evidence and 13C NMR spectroscopy experiments support the proposed mechanism.

  3. Stabilizing Low-Silica Zeolites through Aluminum Sulfate Assisted Cannibalistic Dealumination

    Get cracking! A versatile dealumination strategy is proposed to stabilize NaY zeolites through cannibalistic interaction between the host framework Al and the guest aluminum sulfate. Possessing greatly enhanced hydrothermal stability, newly formed intracrystal mesopores, and an optimized distribution of framework Al, the resultant dealuminated Y zeolite catalysts can be utilized practically in the catalytic cracking of heavy oil.

    Cheap and fast: A copper-catalyzed intermolecular aminoalkoxylation of styrenes is reported. The reaction is regioselective and takes place by a radical mechanism by using N-fluorobenzenesulfonimide (NFSI) as the oxidant and nitrogen source and different simple alcohols [e.g., MeOH, EtOH, or benzyl alcohol (BnOH)] as the alkoxy sources to afford 2-alkoxy-N-(bisphenylsulfonamido)phenethylamines.

  5. Novel Approach for the Characterization of Lewis Acidic Solid Catalysts by Solid-State NMR Spectroscopy

    NMR characterization of Lewis acid sites: Lewis acid sites on TiO2, γ-Al2O3, and lithium-exchanged zeolite Y were studied. 31P MAS NMR spectroscopy of the trimethylphosphine oxide-loaded catalysts allowed the identification of Lewis acid sites from the signals at 48–51 ppm. The site densities were determined by 1H MAS NMR spectroscopy of the ammonia-loaded catalysts and evaluation of the signals at −0.5–3 ppm.
