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!

  1. Palladium on Polydopamine: Its True Potential in Catalytic Transfer Hydrogenations and Heck Coupling Reactions

    Pd on polydopamine: The application of Pd–polydopamine and magnetic Fe3O4@Pd–polydopamine catalysts in catalytic transfer hydrogenation reactions and the Heck arylation is reported. The reduction of a wide range of aromatic nitro-compounds bearing both electron-donating and -withdrawing substituents to the corresponding anilines could be efficiently performed, although the reduction of carbonyl compounds was found to be less general.

    POP-Metal rocks: A durable composite of porous-organic polymer and graphene, metallated with Ni ions, demonstrated significant catalytic performance for water oxidation.

  3. Effects of the Linking of Cyclopentadienyl and Ketimide Ligands in Titanium Half-Sandwich Olefin Polymerization Catalysts

    Unleashed activity: Effects of ketimide ligand distortion that result from its intramolecular tethering in Ti half-sandwich complexes are investigated with respect to the olefin polymerization activity. The role of the cocatalyst on the catalytic performance is decisive. Huge differences between the studied complexes are found if Al-based cocatalysts are used, whereas the activating system in which hydrosilane and B(C6F5)3 are used performs well for both types.

  4. Gold(I)-Complex–Titania Hybrid Photocatalyst for Hydrogen Production

    Coming together: The integration of TiO2 with a AuI complex containing a thiocoumarin moiety results in a catalyst that is intrinsically active for the photogeneration of H2. This is the first example of a AuI-complex–semiconductor hybrid photocatalyst. The rate of H2 generation under dynamic conditions from water/ethanol is approximately one order of magnitude superior on a metal basis to that obtained over conventional TiO2 decorated with Au metal nanoparticles.

  5. Unconventional Pd@Sulfonated Silica Monoliths Catalysts for Selective Partial Hydrogenation Reactions under Continuous Flow

    Dr. Francesca Liguori, Dr. Pierluigi Barbaro, Dr. Bilel Said, Dr. Anne Galarneau, Dr. Vladimiro Dal Santo, Dr. Elisa Passaglia and Dr. Alessandro Feis

    Unconventionality as a principle: Doubly functionalized, hierarchical-porosity silica monoliths, synthesized by postgrafting of sulfonic groups and in situ growth of Pd nanoparticles, show remarkable versatility and efficiency as catalysts under very mild conditions in the continuous-flow, partial hydrogenation reaction of various substrates.
