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!

Bifunctional hybrid: An in situ reduction method is used to prepare 3D reduced graphene oxide (3DRGO) networks decorated with a range of mixed cobalt oxide and nickel oxide nanosheets as a new type of bifunctional catalyst for oxygen evolution and oxygen reduction. Overall, Co3O4@3DRGO shows the highest catalytic activities with an excellent stability and, as a proof-of-concept, this catalyst is used to facilitate the oxygen reactions in a Zn–air battery.
