- Probing The Structure Evolution of Iron-Based Fischer–Tropsch to Produce Olefins by Operando Raman Spectroscopy

Eye of the operando tiger: Operando Raman spectroscopy (ORS) in combination with other techniques was used to analyze the structure evolution of an iron oxide (α-Fe2O3) catalyst during Fischer–Tropsch (FTO) operation to produce olefins. Especially, the preliminary relationship of catalyst structure and performance relating to the production of olefins directly from syngas was established.
- Highly Effective Pt-Based Water–Gas Shift Catalysts by Surface Modification with Alkali Hydroxide Salts
Matthias Kusche, Dr. Karen Bustillo, Dr. Friederike Agel and Prof. Peter Wasserscheid

Load the wagon: The activity of Pt/alumina catalysts for the water–gas shift reaction is greatly enhanced through surface modification of the catalysts with basic and hygroscopic alkali hydroxides, especially KOH. Kinetic studies reveal a negligible effect of the salt coating on the rate dependence of CO and H2O partial pressures. TEM studies indicate an agglomeration of the active Pt clusters after catalyst preparation. This agglomeration is partly reversible under water–gas shift reaction conditions, which leads to a highly active and stable system over 240 h time on stream.
- Polymer Nanoreactor with “Mobility-Recalling” Domains for On/Off Switchable Catalysis
Xiaochun Zheng, Rong Luo, Dr. Maiyong Zhu and Prof. Dr. Songjun Li
Article first published online: 29 JAN 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201402937
Flicking the switch: The challenge in self-controlled catalysis is addressed by constructing a unique polymer nanoreactor containing “mobility-recalling” switchable domains. The switchable domains act as a molecular switch for providing access to the encapsulated metal nanoparticles, and result in on/off-switching catalysis.
- Efficient Organocatalyst Supported on a Simple Ionic Liquid as a Recoverable System for the Asymmetric Diels–Alder Reaction in the Presence of Water
Prof. Antonio De Nino, Dr. Loredana Maiuolo, Prof. Pedro Merino, Dr. Monica Nardi, Prof. Antonio Procopio, Dr. David Roca-López, Dr. Beatrice Russo and Dr. Vincenzo Algieri
Article first published online: 28 JAN 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201402973
Confirming the conformation: The synthesis, characterization, and evaluation of a new highly efficient imidazolidinone organocatalyst is achieved. The catalyst is investigated in enantioselective Diels–Alder reactions, and a conformation study confirms the approach on the less hindered Si face. [mPy][OTf]=Methylpyridinium triflate.
- Iridium(III)-Catalyzed Benzylic Amine Directed CH Sulfonamidation of Arenes with Sulfonyl Azides
Heng Chen and Malcolm P. Huestis
Article first published online: 28 JAN 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201402944
Iridium glides into the azides: The development of a benzylic amine directed ortho-sulfonamidation of aryl CH bonds with sulfonyl azides is detailed. We show that the combination of a commercially available iridium(III) complex with a silver salt gives rise to an active manifold for promoting efficient CN bond formation for a variety of substrates.
