- Enhanced Photoelectrocatalytic Activity of BiOI Nanoplate–Zinc Oxide Nanorod p–n Heterojunction

Improved electron–hole separation: ZnO nanorod arrays have been decorated with BiOI nanoplates. The p–n heterojunction thus obtained plays a significant role in photoelectrocatalytic processes, where the BiOI nanoplates provide reaction sites for the degradation of organic pollutants, and the ZnO nanorods provide a fast transfer channel for electrons, which are ultimately transported to the counter electrode along an FTO substrate (see figure).

Two directions at once: 1,3-Acetonedicarboxylic acid was selectively activated by Fe(acac)3, providing a synthetic platform for the rapid synthesis of keto-3,3′-diols. The bidirectional aldol reaction was efficient for challenging aliphatic aldehydes, providing a rapid route to potentially bioactive complex structures (see scheme; acac = acetylacetonate).
- A General, Practical Triethylborane-Catalyzed Reduction of Carbonyl Functions to Alcohols
Dr. Dongjie Peng, Mintao Zhang and Prof. Dr. Zheng Huang
Article first published online: 31 AUG 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201502942
Low-cost alcohol!: With abundant and low-cost BEt3 as the catalyst, a selective, mild, and user-friendly method is developed for reduction of esters, ketones, and aldehydes into alcohols using an inexpensive hydrosilane. The mechanism involves in situ formation of NaBEt3H by hydride transfer from hydrosilane to sodium triethylalkoxyl borate (see scheme).
- Strongly Coupled Pt–Ni2GeO4 Hybrid Nanostructures as Potential Nanocatalysts for CO Oxidation
Dr. Xin Ge, Xiao Wang, Zhuo Wang, Shuang Yao, Jing Feng, Dapeng Liu, Shuyan Song and Prof. Hongjie Zhang
Article first published online: 31 AUG 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201502034
Flower power: Ni2GeO4 3D flower-like and sphere-like nanostructures were fabricated by a hard-template method and serve as an outstanding support for Pt nanoparticles as efficient catalysts for CO oxidation (see scheme).
