  1. Exploring the Reactivity of Nickel Pincer Complexes in the Decomposition of Formic Acid to CO2/H2 and the Hydrogenation of NaHCO3 to HCOONa

    Dr. Stephan Enthaler, Dr. Andreas Brück, Anja Kammer, Dr. Henrik Junge, Dr. Elisabeth Irran and Dr. Samet Gülak

    Article first published online: 19 OCT 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201402716

    A nickel for your hydrogen economy: The catalytic abilities of nickel complexes modified by a PCP pincer ligand in the decomposition of formic acid to produce dihydrogen and carbon dioxide have been studied.

  2. Photocatalytic Hydrogen Evolution from Silica-Templated Polymeric Graphitic Carbon Nitride–Is the Surface Area Important?

    Dr. Xiaobo Li, Prof. Anthony F. Masters and Prof. Thomas Maschmeyer

    Article first published online: 19 OCT 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201402567

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    More H2 through silica templating: Mesoporous-silica-templated, low-surface-area, polymeric graphitic carbon nitride (SBA–g-C3N4) exhibits a greatly improved photocatalytic hydrogen evolution rate on a per-surface area basis compared to that of conventional bulk graphitic carbon nitrides. The intrinsically high surface activity of SBA–g-C3N4 was confirmed for both homo- (cobaloxime) and heterogeneous (Pt) co-catalyst systems (TEOA=triethanolamine).

  3. Eco-Friendly Catalytic Systems Based on Carbon-Supported Magnesium Oxide Materials for the Friedländer Condensation

    Marina Godino-Ojer, Prof. Antonio J. López-Peinado, Prof. Rosa M. Martín-Aranda, Dr. Jacek Przepiórski, Dr. Elena Pérez-Mayoral and Dr. Elena Soriano

    Article first published online: 19 OCT 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201402602

    Oxide, outside: MgO supported on carbon is able to catalyze the synthesis of interesting N-containing heterocyclic compounds efficiently under mild conditions. MgO on the carbon surface is responsible for the catalytic behavior. These carbon materials are environmentally friendly catalysts for the Friedländer reaction.

  4. Highly Efficient and Magnetically Recoverable Niobium Nanocatalyst for the Multicomponent Biginelli Reaction

    Carolina G. S. Lima, Dr. Sandrina Silva, Ricardo H. Gonçalves, Prof. Dr. Edson R. Leite, Prof. Dr. Ricardo S. Schwab, Prof. Dr. Arlene G. Corrêa and Prof. Dr. Márcio W. Paixão

    Article first published online: 16 OCT 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201402689

    Magnetic personality: A new magnetically recoverable nanocatalyst, Fe3O4@Nb2O5, is prepared and fully characterized. Its catalytic activity is evaluated by using the one-pot, three-component Biginelli reaction, with the aim to synthesize 1,4-dihydropyrimidinones. The new nanocatalyst proves to be highly efficient in synthesizing a wide range of Biginelli products and has the advantage of a remarkably low catalyst loading (0.1 mol %) and high reusability.

  5. Sulfonated Core-Shell Magnetic Nanoparticle (Fe3O4@SiO2@PrSO3H) as a Highly Active and Durable Protonic Acid Catalyst; Synthesis of Coumarin Derivatives through Pechmann Reaction

    Green earth and blue sky: Herein, we wish to disclose a simple bench top procedure for the synthesis of sulfonated core-shell magnetic nanoparticles (SMNPs) (Fe3O4@SiO2@PrSO3H) and discuss its performance as a very strong solid acid in the Pechmann condensation reaction.
