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!

Couldn't ask for MOR: A new class of core–shell superstructure consisting of Pt nanocube assemblies (NCAMs) as the active core and polyaniline (PANI) as a protective and conductive shell is created. The collective electronic properties of the Pt NCAMs core and the high electrical and proton conductivity of the PANI shell ensure enhanced performance towards the methanol oxidation reaction (MOR) relative to that shown by pristine Pt NCAMs and commercial Pt/C.

Branching cascades: The huge potential of diversity oriented synthesis (DOS) is currently being demonstrated by an upsurge of significant achievements. This has led to the development of several techniques to allow the rapid synthesis of several multifunctional polyheterocyclic scaffolds in an efficient manner. Described herein, a new technique of so-called “catalytic branching cascades” is shown to generate a large scaffold diversity.
