    Poly(ionic liquid) support: Nickel nanoparticles (NPs) were successfully synthesized by using imidazolium-based poly(ionic liquids) as stabilizing agents. The stabilized NPs were used as catalysts for the chemoselective reduction of α,β-unsaturated carbonyl compounds. The NPs are magnetically separable, recyclable, and reusable.

    Diamond in the rough: Cleavage of the carbon–nitrogen bond in organic molecules (nitriles, imines, and amines) by palladium supported on nanodiamonds is reported and is linked to the further utilization of biomass.

  3. Polymers and Kinetic Resolutions: The Insolubility of It All

    Robert W. Clark, Dr. Ravish K. Akhani and Prof. Dr. Sheryl L. Wiskur

    Article first published online: 5 FEB 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201500887

    Enantiomer separation: The chromatography-free separation of enantiomers through the use of polymers in kinetic resolutions is highlighted. The three methods discussed all result in one enantiomer free in solution and the other enantiomer as part of the polymer that can be removed through filtration.

  4. PdNP@Titanate Nanotubes as Effective Catalyst for Continuous-Flow Partial Hydrogenation Reactions

    Dr. Noemi Linares, Dr. Carmen Moreno-Marrodan and Dr. Pierluigi Barbaro

    TiNT–you're dynamite: Pd nanoparticles were immobilized on titanate nanotubes and used to promote the selective hydrogenation of alkynes under continuous-flow with high productivity. Overall, the system reported may represent a significant contribution to the development of more sustainable industrial processes.

  5. Ultrasmall Platinum Nanoparticles Supported Inside the Nanospaces of Periodic Mesoporous Organosilica with an Imidazolium Network: An Efficient Catalyst for the Aerobic Oxidation of Unactivated Alcohols in Water

    Aerobic work out: Platinum nanoparticles supported in the channels of periodic mesoporous organosilica with an imidazolium framework (Pt(NP)@PMO-IL) is an excellent and recyclable catalyst for the selective aerobic oxidation of various alcohols in water at ambient pressure of oxygen. The catalyst exhibits high activity in the oxidation of challenging unactivated primary alcohols and sterically encumbered secondary aliphatic alcohols.
