  1. Effect of the Carbon Support on the Catalytic Activity of Ruthenium-Magnetite Catalysts for p-Chloronitrobenzene Hydrogenation

    Elisa Bertolucci, Dr. Revathi Bacsa, Anas Benyounes, Prof. Dr. Anna M. Raspolli-Galletti, Dr.  M. Rosa Axet and Prof. Dr. Philippe Serp

    Article first published online: 27 JUL 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201500364

    Magnetic bimetallic: A very efficient Ru-Fe3O4 nanocatalyst supported on few-layer graphene is prepared that is magnetically recoverable and is able to efficiently hydrogenate p-chloronitrobenzene.

  2. Enhanced Catalytic Performance of Titanium Silicalite-1 in Tuning the Crystal Size in the Range 1200–200 nm in a Tetrapropylammonium Bromide System

    Dr. Yi Zuo, Dr. Min Liu, Ting Zhang, Prof. Changgong Meng, Prof. Xinwen Guo and Prof. Chunshan Song

    Article first published online: 27 JUL 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201500440

    Playing my tune! A facile size-controllable synthesis of titanium silicalite-1 is achieved by tuning the seed content and crystallization time. The size can be adjusted from 200 to 1200 nm. The catalytic activity and propene epoxidation selectivity increase with the decrease of crystal size, and the mechanism of the seed function is related to its content.

  3. Nitrogen-Doped Ordered Mesoporous Carbon with Different Morphologies for the Oxygen Reduction Reaction: Effect of Iron Species and Synergy of Textural Properties

    Dae-Soo Yang, Dhrubajyoti Bhattacharjya, Min Young Song, Fatemeh Razmjooei, Prof. Jaejung Ko, Prof. Quan-Hong Yang and Prof. Jong-Sung Yu

    Article first published online: 24 JUL 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201500340

    Textural healing: N-doped ordered mesoporous carbon (OMC) catalysts with different morphologies are synthesized by pyrolysis of iron phthalocyanine-infiltrated SBA-15 templates with different mesochannel lengths. Excellent electrocatalytic activity in the oxygen reduction reaction with a nearly four-electron transfer process is observed for these catalysts under both alkaline and acidic conditions. p=Platelet-type and s=ellipsoidal morphologies; m=medium length and l=long-rod mesochannels.

  4. Silica-Grafted SnIV Catalysts in Hydrogen-Transfer Reactions

    Sabrina Conrad, Dr. René Verel, Dr. Ceri Hammond, Patrick Wolf, Dr. Florian Göltl and Prof. Dr. Ive Hermans

    Article first published online: 23 JUL 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201500630

    Not every SnIV is alike: The catalytic activity of silica-supported site-isolated SnIV sites in the Meerwein–Ponndorf–Verley reduction of cyclohexanone with 2-butanol is found to strongly depend on site structure and hydrophobicity. Differences in activity compared to benchmark Snβ zeolite further indicate the influence of confinement effects in zeolite pores.

  5. Toluene Oxidation by Hydrogen Peroxide in Deep Eutectic Solvents

    Dr. Nadia Guajardo, Dr. Carlos Carlesi and Dr. Álvaro Aracena

    Article first published online: 21 JUL 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201500604

    It’s DEStiny: The effect of different catalysts, dissolved in deep eutectic solvents (DESs), on the biphasic oxidation of toluene with hydrogen peroxide towards benzaldehyde is studied. High conversion and yield are achieved with the use of ferric chloride dissolved in choline chloride/ethylene glycol DES. The viscosity and hydrogen-bonding character of the solvent are alternative explanations.
