  1. Decatungstate-Photocatalyzed Si[BOND]H/C[BOND]H Activation in Silyl Hydrides: Hydrosilylation of Electron-Poor Alkenes

    Dr. Hisham Qrareya, Dr. Daniele Dondi, Dr. Davide Ravelli and Prof. Maurizio Fagnoni

    Photocatalytic Si[BOND]H cleavage: Tetrabutylammonium decatungstate (TBADT) is used for the photocatalytic activation of the Si[BOND]H bond in trisubstituted silanes and applied for the hydrosilylation of electron-poor alkenes. The mechanism that occurs is dependent on the silane used, and competition between C[BOND]H and Si[BOND]H cleavage was observed.

  2. Design of Artificial Metabolisms in Layered Nanomaterials for the Enzymatic Synthesis of Phosphorylated Sugars

    Between the layers: We describe the design of an artificial metabolism by using enzymes co-immobilized in layered double hydroxides. The constructed nano-bioreactors are proven efficient in biocatalysis and are reusable. Dihydroxyacetone phosphate (DHAP) and C5- and C6-phosphorylated sugars are synthesized with these original biohybrids. AD(T)P=adenosine di(tri)phosphate; PEP=phosphoenolpyruvate.

    X-ray Fluorescence Tomography of Aged Fluid-Catalytic-Cracking Catalyst Particles Reveals Insight into Metal Deposition Processes

    Sam Kalirai, Dr. Ulrike Boesenberg, Dr. Gerald Falkenberg, Dr. Florian Meirer and Prof. Dr. Bert M. Weckhuysen

    Article first published online: 1 SEP 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201500710

    Cracking analysis: Complete Fluid-Catalytic-Cracking catalyst particles can be mapped by using X-ray micro-fluorescence tomography, revealing distribution and correlation of multiple elements. This provides insight into the deposition mechanisms of poison metals onto genuine industrial catalysts.

  4. Copper Nanoparticles Stabilized in a Porous Chitosan Aerogel as a Heterogeneous Catalyst for C[BOND]S Cross-coupling

    Sana Frindy, Prof. Abdelkrim el Kadib, Prof. Mohamed Lahcini, Dr. Ana Primo and Prof. Hermenegildo García

    Article first published online: 1 SEP 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201500565

    Something fishy going on: The fibrils of chitosan, a natural polysaccharide from crustacean skins, define macropores in which Cu nanoparticles are stabilized, and the resulting solid promotes the reaction of thiophenol and iodobenzene.

  5. Identification of Active and Spectator Sn Sites in Sn-β Following Solid-State Stannation, and Consequences for Lewis Acid Catalysis

    Site dependency: The solid-state stannation of zeolite beta leads to the formation of framework-substituted SnIV sites between loadings of 1 and 5 wt %, but may also lead to mixed Sn populations above these loadings. The consequences of this mixed population with regards to the catalytic reactions are identified.
