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!

    It takes three: Ni and Cu mono- and bimetallic catalysts modified with various types of acid oxides MOx are tested for the hydrogenolysis of glycidol as an alternative route to the hydrogenolysis of glycerol to obtain 1,3-propanediol. The presence of modifiers affected the dispersion and reducibility of the NiO particles and the strength and amount of acid sites. Among the modifiers tested, Re leads to the highest activity, a high propanediols selectivity, and the highest 1,3-propanediol/1,2-propanediol ratio.

  3. FeII/FeIII Doped Bi/BiOBr Hierarchical Microspheres as a Highly Efficient Catalyst for Degradation of Organic Contaminants at Neutral pH: The Role of Visible Light and H2O2

    Dr. Wentao Li, Dr. Xin Geng, Dr. Feng Xiao, Dr. Guangyu An and Prof. Dongsheng Wang

    Version of Record online: 21 AUG 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201700549

    Highly active catalyst: FeII/FeIII doped Bi/BiOBr (FBB) is an excellent visible-light, Fenton-like catalyst for the degradation of organic contaminants in wastewater. Visible light can increase the multiple transformation rate of ≡FeIII to ≡FeII over FBB in the presence of H2O2, producing more holes and hydroxyl radicals to degrade organic molecules.

  4. A Titanium Dioxide Supported Gold Nanoparticle Catalyst for the Selective N-Formylation of Functionalized Amines with Carbon Dioxide and Hydrogen

    Feels like the first time: TiO2-supported Au nanoparticles are, for the first time, shown to promote the selective N-formylation of various amines to formamides in excellent yields without the hydrogenation of reducible functional groups. This catalyst system has significant advantages over homogeneous catalysts, including a simple workup procedure, high reusability, and applicability to a wide range of substrates.
