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!

Easy access: By combining nanocatalysis with base catalysis, a novel one-pot multistep process for the synthesis of substituted heterocycles of biological relevance from simple substrates is described. The process is based on the initial Au/O2 oxidation of allylic alcohols, and this is followed by base-catalyzed tandem hetero-Michael/aldolization/crotonization with ortho-hydroxy- or ortho-aminobenzaldehydes.

Transfer point: An efficient synthesis of quinazolines catalyzed by recyclable Pd/C through a hydrogen-transfer strategy is reported. On the basis of this heterogeneous catalytic system, two C−N bonds are formed through intermolecular oxidative amination of C(sp3)−H bonds with a nitro group by a C−N bond cleavage/formation sequence, and decarboxylative amination is also accomplished if amino acids are employed as the substrates.

On good form: The structural sensitivity of the catalytic CO oxidation over CuO nanopowders is shown using two different experimental setups. Particle morphology and defect structure are considered as crucial factors that influence the catalytic properties of copper(II) oxide. CuO nanopowders are characterized by their higher catalytic activity in CO oxidation than large CuO crystallites.

What a gas! We examine the promotional effects of a range of metal sulfates on product distribution over an active and recyclable Ru/P25 catalyst in the aqueous-phase, low-temperature Fischer–Tropsch synthesis. With judicious choice of the metal sulfate as the modifier, a reversible boost in the selectivity to gasoline or diesel is realized for the first time on this catalyst.

Catalytic belt: A three-dimensional NiO nanobelt electrode, which is synthesized by direct oxidation of nickel foam with the hydrothermal method, exhibits high performance for both hydrogen evolution and oxygen evolution reaction, and the introduction of a N-doped carbon layer to form three-dimensional NiO@C nanobelts significantly improves the catalytic performance in oxygen evolution reaction.
