49_32b/2010Inside Cover: Supported Gold and Silver Nanoparticles for Catalytic Deoxygenation of Epoxides into Alkenes (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 32/2010)

Silver and gold nanoparticles were shown to efficiently catalyze deoxygenation of epoxides into alkenes using alcohols as reductants, as described by K. Kaneda and co-workers in their Communication on page 5545 ff. The selectivity for the product alkenes was high and the catalysts were recyclable.
