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!

Avoiding the heat: A boron nitride nanosphere-supported gold–copper catalyst is synthesized for the selective oxidation of ethanol to acetaldehyde. This catalyst exhibits excellent activity and selectivity at a high gas hourly space velocity and a low operation temperature owing to its unique geometric and electronic structures.
- Spatial Distribution of the Vanadium Atomic Species in MoVTeO and MoVTeNbO Oxide Catalysts as Revealed by High-Angle Annular Dark-Field Scanning Transmission Electron Microscopy

Probing the vanadium content: A light-alkane mild-oxidation catalyst corresponding to two different MoVTe(Nb)O M1 phases was characterized by high-angle annular dark-field scanning transmission electron microscopy (STEM–HAADF). Comparison with previous data reveals that the vanadium distribution depends mainly on the total V content of the phases.
- Ring-Opening Reaction of Furfural and Tetrahydrofurfuryl Alcohol on Hydrogen-Predosed Iridium(1 1 1) and Cobalt/Iridium(1 1 1) Surfaces

Selective surfaces: A study of the mechanism of the ring-opening reaction on Ir(1 1 1) and Co/Ir(1 1 1) surfaces is presented. Ir(1 1 1) has ring-opening activity for both furfural and tetrahydrofurfuryl alcohol, and Co/Ir(1 1 1) enhances the ring-opening of furfural. The interaction between the furan ring and the metal surface determines the activity of the ring-opening reaction.
