- Asymmetric Aldol Reaction of Glyoxal Catalyzed by Diarylprolinol
Prof. Dr. Yujiro Hayashi and Masahiro Kojima
Article first published online: 18 JUN 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201300247
All selection should be thiseeasy: The direct asymmetric aldol reaction of commercial aqueous glyoxal is catalyzed by trifluoromethyl-substituted diarylprolinol 1 to afford a β-formyl-β-hydroxy-α-substituted aldehyde in good yield with excellent anti selectivity and excellent enantioselectivity.
- Bifunctional Iron Complexes: Efficient Catalysts for CO and CN Reduction in Water
Delphine S. Mérel, Margaux Elie, Jean-François Lohier, Dr. Sylvain Gaillard and Prof. Jean-Luc Renaud
Article first published online: 17 JUN 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201300325
Is this the iron age? Well-defined iron-complex-catalyzed reduction of aldehydes, ketones, and imines using molecular hydrogen in water is presented. Under mild conditions, good yields for a broad range of substrates are achieved.
- Immobilized Ru Clusters in Nanosized Mesoporous Zirconium Silica for the Aqueous Hydrogenation of Furan Derivatives at Room Temperature
Jiazhi Chen, Dr. Fang Lu, Junjie Zhang, Weiqiang Yu, Prof. Feng Wang, Prof. Jin Gao and Prof. Jie Xu
Article first published online: 17 JUN 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201300316
Ru lonesome tonight? Immobilized ruthenium clusters (50 Ru atoms) in nanosized mesoporous zirconium silica were synthesized by using an impregnation method starting from an aqueous solution of RuCl3. The Ru cluster catalysts were thermally stable at 500 °C and showed remarkable activity for the hydrogenation of furan derivatives in water at room temperature under 5 bar hydrogen pressure.
- An Effective Cellulose-to-Glucose-to-Fructose Conversion Sequence by Using Enzyme Immobilized Fe3O4-Loaded Mesoporous Silica Nanoparticles as Recyclable Biocatalysts
Yi-Chun Lee, Ching-Tien Chen, Yu-Ting Chiu and Prof. Dr. Kevin C.-W. Wu
Article first published online: 17 JUN 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201300219
Goodness, gracious, great balls of iron: Fe3O4-encapsulated mesoporous silica nanoparticles (MSNs) are synthesized and utilized as hosts for the separate immobilization of cellulase and isomerase for a continuous cellulose– glucose–fructose conversion sequence with a high yield of 51 % in aqueous solution.
- Simple and Efficient 1,3-Isomerization of Allylic Alcohols using a Supported Monomeric Vanadium-Oxide Catalyst
Dr. Takato Mitsudome, Shoichiro Sueoka, Satoshi Ikeda, Dr. Tomoo Mizugaki, Prof. Dr. Koichiro Jitsukawa and Prof. Dr. Kiyotomi Kaneda
Article first published online: 14 JUN 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201300200
Promotion by group high five: Silica-supported monomeric vanadium-oxide promoted the isomerization of various allylic alcohols, including under scaled-up and solvent-free reaction conditions. This catalyst also exhibited high reusability with no drop in activity.
