- Tailoring the Morphology of g-C3N4 by Self-Assembly towards High Photocatalytic Performance
Yongliang Liao, Prof. Shenmin Zhu, Prof. Jun Ma, Zhihua Sun, Dr. Chao Yin, Dr. Chengling Zhu, Xianghong Lou and Prof. Di Zhang
Article first published online: 29 SEP 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201402654
Shaping graphitic nitrides: Synthesis of graphitic carbon nitride (g-C3N4) and tailoring of its morphology was performed through adjustment of the molar ratio of melamine to urea, their self-assembly by hydrogen bonding and ionic interactions, and calcination.
- Efficient and Selective Oxidation of D-Glucose into Gluconic acid under Low-Frequency Ultrasonic Irradiation
Damien Rinsant, Dr. Gregory Chatel and Dr. François Jérôme
Article first published online: 29 SEP 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201402604
Radically oxidized! Low-frequency ultrasound associated with the Fenton system (Fe2+/H2O2) can oxidize d-glucose efficiency and selectively into gluconic acid. This sono-Fenton process was demonstrated by studying the effect of hydroxyl radical production on the reaction. This original and eco-efficient method is promising for the further oxidation of chemicals derived from biomass.
- Synthesis of Cyclic Carbonates from Carbon Dioxide and Epoxides Catalyzed by a Keggin-Type Polyoxometalate-Supported Rhenium Carbonyl Derivate in Ionic Liquid
Zhiyuan Huo, Juan Zhao, Prof. Zhanwei Bu, Pengtao Ma, Qisen Liu, Prof. Jingyang Niu and Prof. Jingping Wang
Article first published online: 26 SEP 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201402575
Vacant looks all around: A monovacant Keggin-type polyoxometalate-supported trirhenium carbonyl derivate is synthesized. It is an efficient and recyclable catalyst in the synthesis of cyclic carbonates from carbon dioxide and epoxides under mild reaction conditions in pyrrolidinium bromide ionic liquid. DFT calculations indicate that the derivate acts as a Lewis acid center.
- Heterogeneously Catalyzed Hydrogenation of Squalene to Squalane under Mild Conditions
Valerica Pandarus, Rosaria Ciriminna, Prof. Serge Kaliaguine, Dr. François Béland and Dr. Mario Pagliaro
Article first published online: 26 SEP 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201402668
Sharkless squalane: Full chemoselective hydrogenation of highly unsaturated squalene into squalane is achieved over a sol–gel-entrapped palladium catalyst SiliaCat Pd0. The mild conditions required (1 atm, 30 °C, 0.5–1.0 mol % catalyst) and the catalyst stability and recyclability are a step towards replacing shark-liver oil as a source of squalene in the medicinal and cosmetic industries with alternative sources such as sugarcane.
- A Breakthrough in Sustainable Production of Formate Salts: Combined Catalytic Methanol Dehydrogenation and Bicarbonate Hydrogenation
Article first published online: 26 SEP 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201402591
G’day, formate! The recent breakthrough discovery by Beller et al. in the production of formate salts by combined dehydrogenation of methanol and hydrogenation of bicarbonates is discussed.
