ChemCatChem: The Wait is Over
The inaugural issue of ChemCatChem was just published. The chairmen of our Editorial Board have very kindly provided us with their thoughts on the important role that catalysis plays today and, even more importantly, the important role that ChemCatChem will play in the future. Read the musings of Uwe Bornscheuer, Luis A. Oro and Bert Weckhuysen now.
Besides this editorial content, we are also very proud to bring you a triumvirate of extremely timely and enlightening review articles, covering all three of the major catalytic disciplines. Matthias Beller discusses all that is state-of-the-art in Palladium-catalyzed carbonylation reactions of alkenes and alkynes, Uwe Bornscheuer sums up the latest biocatalytic routes to optically active amines and last, but by no means least, Wolfgang Schmidt brings you his thoughts on solid catalysts on the nanoscale: design of complex morphologies and pore structures. All of these, as well as the cream of original catalysis research from all over the world, are available to read free of charge right now.
