ChemCatChem Board Members receive Catalysis Awards

Two ChemCatChem board members have received prestigious awards at the 16th International Congress on Catalysis (ICC) in Beijing, P.R. China. Dr. David Farrusseng, IRCE Lyon, CNRS, (France) has received the International Catalysis Award 2016. He presented a Plenary Lecture entitled "Catalysis Inside a Box" at the ICC.

Prof. Paolo Fornasiero, University of Trieste (Italy) has received the Heinz Heinemann Award 2016. He presented a Plenary Lecture entitled "Hybrid Nanocatalysts for Energy Related Applications" at the ICC.

We congratulate both of them and thank them for their support!

    Stuck like PB: A newly synthesized boron-containing pincer ligand with an aliphatic backbone is treated with [Ir(coe)2Cl]2 (coe=cyclooctene) to result in (P-B-P)Ir(H)Cl. A catalyst system comprising this Ir complex and KOtBu shows excellent performance in releasing 1 equivalent of H2 from the N,N-dimethylamine–borane complex at a low catalyst loading (0.05 mol %) with an initial turnover frequency (TOF) of approximately 3400 h−1.

    POP goes the nanoparticle: Robust nanoarchitectures based on surfactant-free ultrafine Pd nanoparticles (NPs) were developed by using the incipient wetness impregnation method with subsequent reduction of the PdII species encaged in the 1,3,5-triazine-functionalized nitrogen-rich porous organic polymer (POP) by NaBH4, HCHO, and H2. Strong metal–support interactions, the nanoconfinement effect of POP, and the homogeneous distribution of Pd NPs have been investigated along with the catalysts’ effectiveness in the hydrodeoxygenation of vanillin, a typical compound of lignin-derived bio-oil.

    What catalyzes the Diels–Alder reaction? Although Lewis acids can catalyze the dehydration of the Diels–Alder (DA) cycloadduct, it is unclear whether these same catalysts can catalyze the DA step. Thus, electronic structure calculations and microkinetic modelling have been employed to investigate the DA aromatization of 2,5-dimethylfuran and ethylene to p-xylene over the Lewis-acidic zeotypes Sn-, Zr-, and Ti-BEA. The results show that there is only minor catalysis of the DA reaction, solely attributable to confinement phenomena varying with the translational freedom allowed to the species inside the zeolite.
