  1. Merging Surface Organometallic Chemistry with Graphitic Carbon Nitride Photocatalysis for CO2 Photofixation

    Guigang Zhang, Zhi-An Lan and Prof. Dr. Xinchen Wang

    Article first published online: 17 APR 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201500133

    On the surface: The reaction kinetics of CO2 photocatalytic reduction to formic acid on graphitic carbon nitride polymers can be promoted by surface organometallic chemistry. C.B.=Conduction band, V.B.=Valance band, D=electron donor.

  2. Benzimidazole-Containing Porous Organic Polymers as Highly Active Heterogeneous Solid-Base Catalysts

    Yangxin Wang, Dr. Lijun Wang, Dr. Caiping Liu and Prof. Ruihu Wang

    Article first published online: 17 APR 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201500244

    All about that base: Two benzimidazole-containing porous organic polymers (BPOP-2 and BPOP-2) are presented. They exhibit a higher catalytic activity in the Knoevenagel condensation reaction than their homogeneous molecular counterpart. The specific surface area and pore character, not Lewis basicity, are responsible for the difference of catalytic activity in the two polymers.

  3. Visible-Light-Induced C[DOUBLE BOND]C Bond Cleavage of Enaminones for the Synthesis of 1,2-Diketones and Quinoxalines in Sustainable Medium

    Shuo Cao, Shanshan Zhong, Luoting Xin, Dr. Jie-Ping Wan and Prof. Dr. Chengping Wen

    Article first published online: 15 APR 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201500139

    White LED power to diketones: A sustainable synthetic protocol towards the synthesis of 1,2-diketones is achieved by visible-light-induced cleavage of the C[DOUBLE BOND]C double bond in enaminones.

  4. Thermally Stabilized Cobalt-Based Fischer–Tropsch Catalysts by Phosphorous Modification of Al2O3: Effect of Calcination Temperatures on Catalyst Stability

    Min Hee Woo, Jae Min Cho, Dr. Ki-Won Jun, Dr. Yun Jo Lee and Prof. Dr. Jong Wook Bae

    Article first published online: 15 APR 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201402994

    Phosphorous guard: A phosphorous-modified Al2O3 support was prepared by the impregnation method and applied in the preparation of cobalt-based Fischer–Tropsch-synthesis catalysts, which were calcined at different temperatures. The higher catalytic activity even at high calcination temperatures compared to that of the unmodified CoAl catalysts was explained by suppression of aggregation and migration of cobalt particles by forming thermally stable aluminum phosphorous oxo-species on the Al2O3 surface.

  5. Silver-Catalyzed Synthesis of 1-Chloroalkynes Directly from Terminal Alkynes

    Dunfa Shi, Zhiwen Liu, Ziyu Zhang, Dr. Wei Shi and Prof. Hao Chen

    Article first published online: 15 APR 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201500243

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    A silver lining: A mild and efficient method for the preparation of 1-chloloalkynes from readily available terminal alkynes by using a catalytic amount of a silver salt with N-chlorosuccinimide (NCS) as the chlorinating agent is reported. This method can be applied to both aryl and alkyl alkynes. Over 95 % of the silver catalyst can be recycled by simple filtration.
