  1. An Empirical Study of Phosphine Ligands for the Methoxycarbonylation of Medium-Chain Alkenes

    Prof. Cedric Holzapfel and Dr. Tyler Bredenkamp

    Article first published online: 31 JUL 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201500464

    The cat’s out of the bag: A comparative study of various phosphine ligands is undertaken to discern the necessary requirements for a suitable catalyst for the methoxycarbonylation of higher aliphatics. Our findings demonstrate that a number of ligand structural motifs can facilitate the reaction effectually and that the most promising ligands bear one bulky electron-rich P atom and one bulky electron-poor P atom, demonstrating a catopdative-like effect.

  2. Highly Active and Stable Palladium Nanoparticles Encapsulated in a Mesoporous Silica Yolk–Shell Nanoreactor for Suzuki–Miyaura Reactions

    Fang Wei, Dr. Changyan Cao, Yongbin Sun, Shuliang Yang, Peipei Huang and Prof. Dr. Weiguo Song

    Article first published online: 29 JUL 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201500600

    Core catalysis: A yolk–shell nanoreactor with nitrogen-doped carbon spheres as the yolk and mesoporous silica (mSiO2) as the shell, together with Pd nanoparticles uniformly encapsulated in the void space, showed excellent catalytic activity and stability in the Suzuki–Miyaura reaction. CTAB=Hexadecyl trimethyl ammonium bromide, PDA=Polydopamine, TEOS=Tetraethyl orthosilicate.

  3. Enhancement of Photoelectrochemical Performance in Water Oxidation over Bismuth Vanadate Photoanodes by Incorporation with Reduced Graphene Oxide

    Yingfei Hu, Yao Su, Huiting Huang, Qinfeng Qian, Zhongjie Guan, Dr. Jianyong Feng, Prof. Zhaosheng Li and Prof. Zhigang Zou

    Article first published online: 29 JUL 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201500485

    Change the channel: Reduced graphene oxide (RGO) sheets with excellent electronic conductivity are introduced to bismuth vanadate photoanode films to provide an effective channel for electron transport. The proposed mechanism of charge transport for the reduced graphene oxide–bismuth vanadate photoelectrode under irradiation is depicted. FTO=Fluorine-doped tin oxide.

  4. Highly Selective Hydrodecarbonylation of Oleic Acid into n-Heptadecane over a Supported Nickel/Zinc Oxide–Alumina Catalyst

    Dr. Guangci Li, Feng Zhang, Dr. Lei Chen, Chuanhui Zhang, Dr. He Huang and Prof. Dr. Xuebing Li

    Article first published online: 28 JUL 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201500418

    Basic rules! A suitable amount of basicity on the support is favorable for the conversion of oleic acid into n-alkanes mainly through hydrodecarbonylation with relatively low hydrogen consumption.

  5. Effect of the Carbon Support on the Catalytic Activity of Ruthenium-Magnetite Catalysts for p-Chloronitrobenzene Hydrogenation

    Elisa Bertolucci, Dr. Revathi Bacsa, Anas Benyounes, Prof. Dr. Anna M. Raspolli-Galletti, Dr.  M. Rosa Axet and Prof. Dr. Philippe Serp

    Article first published online: 27 JUL 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201500364

    Magnetic bimetallic: A very efficient Ru-Fe3O4 nanocatalyst supported on few-layer graphene is prepared that is magnetically recoverable and is able to efficiently hydrogenate p-chloronitrobenzene.
