  1. Synthesis and Properties of Core–Shell Metal–Ceramic Microstructures and their Application as Heterogeneous Catalysts

    Jieun Kim and Prof. Doohwan Lee

    Article first published online: 24 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201402274

    You can call me Al: Simple hydrothermal synthesis forms unique core–shell metal–ceramic microstructures with an Al core encapsulated by a crystalline metal oxide shell of various morphological and compositional features. The Rh/MgAl2O4@Al catalyst demonstrates superior Rh dispersion, stability, and an enhanced glycerol reforming rate because of the facilitated heat and mass transport.

  2. Rapid Discovery of a Photocatalyst for Air Purification by High-Throughput Screening

    Dr. Song Sun, Fan Zhang, Dr. Zeming Qi, Dr. Jianjun Ding, Dr. Jun Bao and Prof. Chen Gao

    Article first published online: 24 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201402332

    Screen if you wanna go faster: A photocatalyst for air purification is high-throughput screened by the developed combinatorial method by using an infrared microscope equipped with a homemade in situ reaction cell and a gas dosing system. 1.0 % La3+/0.4 % Nd3+–TiO2 was rapidly picked out as an active composite for toluene degradation with a degradation rate of 93.4 % in 2 h.

  3. Hafnia–Silica Cryogels: Solvent-Assisted Textural and Catalytic Control in the Citronellal Cyclization

    Dr. Ciril Jimeno, Jonathan Miras and Dr. Jordi Esquena

    Article first published online: 24 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201402189

    Alcohol affects your pores: HfO2–SiO2 cryogels display unprecedented catalytic activity in the citronellal cyclization to isopulegol. The alcoholic solvent used in their synthesis determines the textural and catalytic characteristics, including acidity. tert-Butyl alcohol stands up as the solvent of choice, producing materials with high specific surface area, porosity, and Lewis acidity.

  4. Preparation of Palladium Catalysts Supported on Carbon Nanotubes by an Electrostatic Adsorption Method

    Liyun Zhang, Dr. Guodong Wen, Dr. Hongyang Liu, Prof. Ning Wang and Prof. Dang Sheng Su

    Article first published online: 24 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201402175

    Hop on the nanotube: Pd/C nanotubes with a Pd size of around 1 nm is synthesized successfully by a facile strong electrostatic method. The oxygen groups could decrease the point of zero charge and promote the adsorption of Pd cationic complexes. The intrinsic and in situ formed (hydrolyzed by carboxylic anhydride) carboxylic acid groups mainly influence the adsorption of Pd cationic complexes.

  5. ZnIn2S4: A Photocatalyst for the Selective Aerobic Oxidation of Amines to Imines under Visible Light

    Lin Ye and Prof. Zhaohui Li

    Article first published online: 23 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201402360

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    Gasping for air: The highly efficient selective aerobic oxidation of amines to imines by using air as the oxidant is achieved over ZnIn2S4 under visible-light irradiation. This transformation involves the oxygenation of amines to form aldehydes, followed by nucleophilic addition of the amines to afford the final imines. e=Electrons, h+=holes.
