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!

Going dotty: Fe3O4 nanoparticles modified with graphene quantum dots (GQD) are used for the stabilization of PdCu bimetallic nanoparticles. This material is applied as an efficient catalyst for the Sonogashira reaction of aryl iodides, bromides, and chlorides in toluene or N,N-dimethylacetamide at 60–110 °C in very high yields with 0.3 mol % of Pd loading.
- Hydrogenation of Carbon Dioxide over K-Promoted FeCo Bimetallic Catalysts Prepared from Mixed Metal Oxalates
Dr. Muthu Kumaran Gnanamani, Prof. Hussein H. Hamdeh, Dr. Gary Jacobs, Wilson D. Shafer, Shelley D. Hopps, Dr. Gerald A. Thomas and Prof. Burtron H. Davis

Promoting effect of potassium: In the hydrogenation of CO2 over K-promoted FeCo bimetallic catalysts, initial CO2 conversion was dependent on K loading, whereas most catalysts exhibited similar conversion levels after a few hours. Decarburization suggests that potassium stabilizes iron carbides and decreases the hydrogenation function of the catalysts; thus, it controls product selectivity. Potassium enhanced acetic acid formation and suppressed ethanol production.
- High-Yield Synthesis of Ethyl Lactate with Mesoporous Tin Silicate Catalysts Prepared by an Aerosol-Assisted Sol–Gel Process
