Inside Cover: Graphene-Supported Ultrafine Metal Nanoparticles Encapsulated by Mesoporous Silica: Robust Catalysts for Oxidation and Reduction Reactions (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 1/2014)
Ultrafine metal nanoparticles can be supported on graphene nanosheets and encapsulated by a thin mesoporous silica layer to produce a robust catalyst, as demonstrated by Y. Yin, T. R. Zhang et al. in their Communication on page 250 ff. The catalyst exhibits high activity, good stability against sintering under high temperature conditions, and excellent recycling and reusability in both gas- and solution-phase reactions.
