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!

Facet head on: CuO nanosheets with exposed active (1 1 0) facets are facilely prepared through surface structure engineering by reassembling CuO nanoflowers in H2O2 aqueous solution. The CO oxidation activity of the H2O2-treated CuO nanosheets is apparently higher than that of the pristine sample.
- Titanium cis-1,2-Diaminocyclohexane Salalen Catalysts of Outstanding Activity and Enantioselectivity for the Asymmetric Epoxidation of Nonconjugated Terminal Olefins with Hydrogen Peroxide

Nine-to-fivers: The titanium complex of the cis-DACH salalen ligand catalyzes the asymmetric epoxidation of terminal, nonconjugated olefins with unprecedented efficiency and excellent selectivity. In the presence of acid/base co-catalysts, olefins such as 1-octene are epoxidized in high yields with high enantioselectivities within a few hours at room temperature by using aqueous H2O2 as the terminal oxidant.

Try again for triazoles: An enolate-mediated organocatalytic vinyl azide-carbonyl [3+2] cycloaddition (OrgVACC) of various ketones/aldehydes with vinyl azides is reported. It is an efficient catalytic intermolecular OrgVACC reaction for the synthesis of N-vinyl-1,2,3-triazoles.

Surface reaction: The ionic liquid 1-ethyl-3-methylimidazolium ethylsulfate is supported on Pd-Al2O3 to yield a solid catalyst with an ionic liquid layer. During the hydrogenation of ethene, ethene is incorporated into the imidazolium moiety in a reaction catalyzed by the palladium surface. On the basis of in situ diffuse reflection infrared Fourier transformation spectroscopy, a reaction mechanism involving surface carbene species is proposed.
