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!

    Tubular potential: Cobalt and iron corrole complexes have been used as catalysts of H2O reduction to generate H2. Electro- and photocatalysis of water reduction occurred with dissolved corroles. Carbon nanotubes doped with corroles were used as photo-electrochemical catalysts with increased hydrogen production. The catalytic efficiency increased by five orders of magnitude if the molecular catalysts were adsorbed onto the carbon nanotubes.

    On break: The development of a continuous-flow protocol for Pd-catalyzed olefin cleavage by using molecular oxygen as the sole oxidant to give carbonyl compounds is described. The applicability of the continuous-flow protocol is demonstrated on several olefin substrates. The continuous-flow process enables safe and scalable olefin cleavage by using pure O2.

    DOS and don'ts of dehydrogenation: In the dehydrogenation of alkanes, conventional metal-based catalysts enable the dissociation of O2 into dissociative oxygen species (DOS), and thereby the C−H bonds can be easily activated; however, DOS inevitably overoxidize the alkanes to CO2. Adsorbed O2 at the edges of boron nitride can abstract a hydrogen atom from ethane to deliver the corresponding alkene with 100 % selectivity (S).
