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!

    Into the blue: The vitamin B2 derivative riboflavin tetraacetate (RFT) catalyzes the visible-light-driven esterification of aldehydes to the corresponding methyl esters under acidic conditions in a methanol/acetonitrile mixture. Electron transfer from the in situ formed dimethyl acetal to the photoexcited protonated 3(RFTH+)* molecule appears to be key for the formation of the desired ester. Atmospheric oxygen is the terminal oxidant.

    R⋅⋅⋅u single? Single-site Ru complexes are synthesized and evaluated as water oxidation catalysts. The catalytic activity is enhanced by the presence of electron-donating groups, and a linear relationship between the Hammett parameters of the substituents and the turnover frequencies is established. A general pathway for deactivation of these Ru catalysts during water oxidation through poisoning by CO is also established.
