  1. Probing the Metal–Support Interaction in Carbon-Supported Catalysts by using Electron Microscopy

    Prof. Bingsen Zhang and Prof. Dang Sheng Su

    Article first published online: 13 OCT 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201500666

    Relying on carbon for support: Advanced analytical transmission electron microscopy techniques are powerful tools that can be used to probe the metal–carbon support interaction in carbon-supported metal catalysts, as they directly reveal the structure of the catalyst at the atomic scale and can also reveal chemical and electronic structural information related to the synthesis and catalytic properties of the catalyst.

  2. Palladium Nanoparticles Supported on Titanate Nanobelts for Solvent-Free Aerobic Oxidation of Alcohols

    Dr. Yong-Ming Lu, Hai-Zhou Zhu, Dr. Jian-Wei Liu and Prof. Dr. Shu-Hong Yu

    Article first published online: 12 OCT 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201500491

    Nanobelt-supported nanocatalyst: A titanate nanobelt has been found to be an excellent support for solvent-free Pd-catalyzed alcohol oxidation, which could completely suppress the formation of toluene and benzoic acid. The basic nature and morphology of the support played a crucial role for the reaction performance.

  3. Operando Characterization of Catalysts through use of a Portable Microreactor

    Dr. Shen Zhao, Dr. Yuanyuan Li, Dr. Eli Stavitski, Dr. Ryan Tappero, Stephen Crowley, Prof. Marco J. Castaldi, Dr. Dmitri N. Zakharov, Prof. Ralph G. Nuzzo, Prof. Anatoly I. Frenkel and Dr. Eric A. Stach

    Article first published online: 9 OCT 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201500688

    Know your catalyst: A portable microreactor is exploited to characterize working catalysts using a wide variety of relevant analytical probes. It is shown that this approach allows characterization of (1) the structure and electronic properties of the metal catalysts, (2) the nature of the support, and (3) the catalytic chemistry. The approach is shown to be general, and allows explicit links to be made between different characterization methods.

  4. Nanocrystalline Mo2C as a Bifunctional Water Splitting Electrocatalyst

    The writing’s on the (multi)wall: Molybdenum carbide templated on multiwalled carbon nanotube is an excellent bifunctional electrocatalyst for HER catalyst in acid and base, and OER in base.

  5. Effect of Titania Regular Macroporosity on the Photocatalytic Hydrogen Evolution on Cd1−xZnxS/TiO2 Catalysts under Visible Light

    Article first published online: 8 OCT 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201500897

    Turn on the (visible) light: TiO2 samples were synthesized by using a polystyrene template and a template-free technique and then photocatalysts Cd0.4Zn0.6S/TiO2 with a different porosity were prepared. It was shown that the regular porous structure of TiO2 benefits the activity of Cd0.4Zn0.6S/TiO2. Photocatalytic activity (λ=450 nm) 1800 μmol H2 g−1 h−1 was achieved.
