Phantom of the operando: During the methanol-to-olefins process over H-SAPO-34 the reaction pathways leading to the formation of olefins and polyaromatics compete. Based on a unique combined operando approach, a first-order kinetic model is proposed to describe both reactions, revealing comparable activation energies. MCT= Mercury–cadmium–telluride.

Nanorattle catalysis: The photothermal properties of plasmonic nanoparticles are used for photothermal enhancement of the catalytic efficiency of reactions occurring within a hollow palladium nanoparticle containing small solid gold nanospheres in the cavity.
- Investigation of the Kinetics of a Surface Photocatalytic Reaction in Two Dimensions with Surface-enhanced Raman Scattering
Evelien M. van Schrojenstein Lantman, Dr. Onno L. J. Gijzeman, Dr. Arjan J. G. Mank and Prof. Dr. Bert M. Weckhuysen

We plough the surface and scatter: Surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy can be used to determine the reaction kinetics of surface reactions within self-assembled monolayers. As a proof of principle we have chosen to study the photocatalytic reduction of p-nitrothiophenol. A study of the reaction rate and dilution effects leads to the conclusion that a dimerization must take place as one of the reaction steps.
- Morphology-Tuned Exceptional Catalytic Activity of Porous-Polymer-Supported Mn3O4 in Aerobic sp3 CH Bond Oxidation of Aromatic Hydrocarbons and Alcohols

Exceptional crystal facets: Nanoporous-polymer-supported Mn3O4 nanocatalysts (Mn@DVTA, DVTA=divinyltriallyl) with different morphologies are developed to catalyze aerobic sp3 CH bond oxidation of aromatic hydrocarbons and alcohols. Among the different nanocatalysts, those with octahedral crystallite morphology exhibit outstanding catalytic performance.
- Improving the Time Resolution for Remote Control of Enzyme Activity by a Nanosecond Laser-Induced pH Jump
Dr. Stefanie Kohse, Dr. Antje Neubauer, Prof. Dr. Stefan Lochbrunner and Prof. Dr. Udo Kragl
Article first published online: 28 OCT 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201402442
Spotlight on: A laser-induced enzyme activation method for application in real-time analysis of proteinogenic systems is demonstrated on a nanosecond time scale. A pH jump is used for switching the activity of a hydrolytic enzyme. The time resolution of activation is thereby only limited to a few nanoseconds.
