2013_30/2013Binuclear Cage-Like Copper(II) Silsesquioxane (“Cooling Tower”) – Its High Catalytic Activity in the Oxidation of Benzene and Alcohols (Eur. J. Inorg. Chem. 30/2013)

The cover picture shows a symbolic process of benzene/alcohol oxidation catalysis by the binuclear cage-like copper(II) silsesquioxane with an unprecedented structure (“Cooling Tower”). The high catalytic activity of this very unusual, frustum-like cage compound gave the authors an opportunity to ironically represent the oxidation reaction as a “chemical plant” process. Details are discussed in the article by A. N. Bilyachenko, M. M. Levitsky, G. B. Shul'pin et al. on p. 5240 ff. For more on the story behind the cover research, see the Cover Profile.
