Long live the catalyst! The heterogenization of rhodium catalysts onto a magnetic support and recovery without loss of metal, reactivity, and selectivity is discussed. Rhodium nanoparticles are used as catalyst precursors, and the active species are studied by using Raman spectroscopy.
- A New Type of Lewis Acid–Base Bifunctional M(salphen) (M=Zn, Cu and Ni) Catalysts for CO2 Fixation

Bifunctional catalysts: A new type of Lewis acid–base bifunctional Zn(salphen) catalysts with an organic base, N-methylhomopiperazine, as a nucleophile were prepared by a one-pot method and successfully applied in the production of cyclic carbonates from CO2 and epoxides. The catalysts used in this catalytic system are extremely stable and can be recycled at least five times and their activity is almost unchanged.
- Thermally Induced Strains on the Catalytic Activity and Stability of Pt–M2O3/C (M=Y or Gd) Catalysts towards Oxygen Reduction Reaction

Positive sauna effect: Carbon-supported Pt–Y2O3 and Pt–Gd2O3 nanoparticles (NPs) are prepared by a water-in-oil nanoemulsion chemical route, followed by heat treatment at 100 and 300 °C. Heat-treated particles have slightly larger particle sizes than the as-prepared ones and contain microstrains, as detected by electron microscopy and X-ray analysis, respectively, enhancing their catalytic activity and stability toward the oxygen reduction reaction.
- Continuous Transfer Hydrogenation of Sugars to Alditols with Bioderived Donors over Cu–Ni–Al Catalysts
David Scholz, Dr. Christof Aellig, Dr. Cecilia Mondelli and Prof. Javier Pérez-Ramírez
Article first published online: 29 APR 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201403005
Finding the right partner: Hydrotalcite-derived Cu–Ni–Al materials efficiently catalyze the continuous transfer hydrogenation of C6 and C5 sugars with biobased alcohols as hydrogen donors with yields of up to 67 %. This technology comprises a safer and cheaper alternative to direct hydrogenation over Ru catalysts.
- Asymmetric NaBH4 1,4-Reduction of C3-Disubstituted 2-Propenoates Catalyzed by a Diamidine Cobalt Complex
Yoshihiro Shuto, Tomoya Yamamura, Dr. Shinji Tanaka, Dr. Masahiro Yoshimura and Prof. Masato Kitamura
Article first published online: 27 APR 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201500260
Reduction reconsidered: CoCl2 and CoH2(BH3)2 complexes of a neutral and rigid diamidine sp2N ligand catalyze highly enantioselective 1,4-reduction of C3-disubstituted 2-propenoates by NaBH4 to produce the corresponding esters with a saturated prenyl-type motif. A series of experiments suggest that a mechanism of CoH-involved non-single-electron transfer 1,4-addition differentiates the C2 enantioface.
