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!

Tearing down yet another wall! Already-successful (cyclopentadienone)iron complexes are shown to catalyze the hydrogenation of a new class of compounds, namely, esters. Upon in situ activation with Me3NO, trifluoroacetates are quantitatively reduced under mild conditions and low catalyst loadings.

Gasoline from methanol: ZSM-5 crystals with controllable c-axis length were successfully synthesized through a one-pot solvent-free route, with urea as an additive. Catalytic tests for the methanol to gasoline (MTG) conversion showed that the prepared c-axis oriented hierarchical ZSM-5, which allow fast mass transfer, exhibited both 100 % methanol conversion and far longer lifetime (900 h) than those of ZSM-5 with conventional morphology (350 h).
