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!

Which pathway? Highly enantioselective hydrogenations of linear enones catalyzed by Ir complexes that bear a chiral P,N ligand are investigated computationally. Compared to the results of previous studies, the mechanism is different because of the coordination of the substrate. The calculated path rationalizes the observed enantioselectivities and allows the development a predictive quadrant model for this class of substrate–ligand combination.

Golden combination: Gold/zinc oxide catalysts are active in the conversion of methanol to higher hydrocarbons under mild conditions. Conversions exceed 97 % and a selectivity of approximately 44 % hydrocarbons and 56 % dimethyl ether under the selected reaction conditions can be achieved.

Put palladium on it: An advanced catalyst based on polydopamine-functionalized reduced graphene oxide (PDA-RGO)/Pd nanocomposite is synthesized by a simple wet chemical approach at room temperature. Outstanding catalytic and electrocatalytic properties are observed for the catalytic degradation of methylene blue and the electrocatalytic determination of paracetamol, respectively.
