  1. Across the Board: Michael North

    Prof. Michael North

    Version of Record online: 22 JUL 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201600910

    Cover all the bases: Our board member Prof. Michael North highlights the main points and challenges towards sustainable ring-opening polymerisation methods, stressing that the overall reaction conditions, as well as highly active polymerisation initiators based on Earth abundant materials, must be considered and optimized.

  2. Pollution Control Meets Sustainability: Structure–Activity Studies on New Iron Oxide-Based CO Oxidation Catalysts

    Roland Schoch and Prof. Dr. Matthias Bauer

    Version of Record online: 21 JUL 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201600508

    CO oxidation: Alumina-supported iron oxide catalysts are prepared for the oxidation of carbon monoxide. The catalysts show highly promising activity and are a biocompatible alternative to precious metal catalysts. A directed synthesis approach using core–shell iron– aluminum nanoparticle precursors is established by which catalysts of distinct activity can be obtained and investigated.

  3. A Chitosan Derivative Containing Both Carboxylic Acid and Quaternary Ammonium Moieties for the Synthesis of Cyclic Carbonates

    Dr.  Vincent Besse, Dr.  Nicolas Illy, Dr.  Ghislain David, Dr.  Sylvain Caillol and Prof.  Bernard Boutevin

    Version of Record online: 21 JUL 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201600499

    Renewable catalysis: A chitosan-based catalyst for epoxide carbonation is described. The catalyst is efficient for the synthesis of a wide range of compounds under significantly milder operating conditions (pressure and temperature) compared to previously reported bio-based supported catalysts. It is also recyclable more than five times without loss of activity.

  4. Self-Supported Cu-Based Nanowire Arrays as Noble-Metal-Free Electrocatalysts for Oxygen Evolution

    Chun-Chao Hou, Prof. Dr. Wen-Fu Fu and Prof. Dr. Yong Chen

    Version of Record online: 21 JUL 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201600592

    Easy arrays: Crystalline Cu-based nanowire arrays including Cu(OH)2, CuO, Cu2O, and CuOx self-supported on Cu foil can act as highly efficient, low-cost, and robust electrocatalysts for the oxygen evolution reaction. The low cost, easy accessibility, high activity at relatively low overpotential enable the self-supported Cu-based nanomaterials to be promising for practical applications.

    Tandem Catalytic Depolymerization of Lignin by Water-Tolerant Lewis Acids and Rhodium Complexes

    Dr. Robin Jastrzebski, Dr. Sandra Constant, Dr. Christopher S. Lancefield, Prof. Dr. Nicholas J. Westwood, Prof. Dr. Bert M. Weckhuysen and Dr. Pieter C. A. Bruijnincx

    Version of Record online: 21 JUL 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201600683

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    Catch and release: A tandem acidolysis/decarbonylation strategy allows for efficient catalytic scavenging of reactive lignin fragments avoiding monomer loss by recondensation. Product selectivity can be tuned by variation of the Lewis acid and lignin source.
