  1. Fabrication of Ultrafine Palladium Phosphide Nanoparticles as Highly Active Catalyst for Chemoselective Hydrogenation of Alkynes

    Dr. Ming Zhao

    Article first published online: 25 NOV 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201500939

    Small, smaller, … Monodisperse Pd–P NPs with a smallest size ever reported of 3.9 nm were fabricated using cheap and stable triphenylphosphine as a phosphorous source. After calcination, the crystallized Pd3P0.95 NPs with a single phase were formed, which acted as a highly active and selective catalyst in semi- and stereoselective hydrogenation of alkynes.

  2. Heteropoly Acid/Nitrogen Functionalized Onion-like Carbon Hybrid Catalyst for Ester Hydrolysis Reactions

    Know your onion-like carbon: A heteropoly acid (HPA)/nitrogen functionalized onion-like carbon (NOLC) hybrid catalyst was successfully synthesized. The hydrophobic environment of NOLC effectively prevents the deactivation of HPA in an aqueous system, and the synergistic effect between NOLC and HPA significantly promotes its activity in hydrolysis reactions.

  3. Temperature-Responsive Chiral (A)6B Supramolecular Cages Based on Conformational Preferences

    ABC News: Two chiral A6B-typed supramolecular cages were constructed from hydrogen-bonded C6-symmetric zinc porphyrin hexamers and chiral C3-symmetric pyridyl hexadentates. Circular dichroism and molecular simulations revealed that the symmetry of the supramolecular cages switched from pseudo-C3v to C3 with the rotational confinement of the biphenyl backbones at low temperatures, which generated conformationally chiral transfer and amplification.
