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!

    No sacrificing electron donors: A novel photocathode (TiO2 NTs/CuTPP-COOH) has been demonstrated to be capable of reducing dissolved O2 to H2O2 with evolution rates ranging between 2 and 13 μgH2O2 mgcat-1 h-1.

  4. The Role of Metallic Copper in the Selective Hydrodeoxygenation of Glycerol to 1,2-Propanediol over Cu/ZrO2

    Cu-Commonly underrated: Cu/ZrO2 catalysts exhibit high selectivity for the hydrodeoxygenation of glycerol to 1,2-propanediol under mild reaction conditions. Metallic Cu is identified as the active site for the sequential dehydration-hydrogenation reaction steps.

  5. Porous Carbon Nanosheet-Supported Chiral Squaramide for Highly Enantioselective Friedel–Crafts Reaction

    Liyuan Zhao, Xiaoze Bao, Qingtao Hu, Prof. Dr. Baomin Wang and Prof. Dr. An-Hui Lu

    Version of Record online: 19 FEB 2018 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201701897

    Looking for support: A porous carbon nanosheet (PCN)-immobilized chiral catalyst is used in the asymmetric Friedel–Crafts addition of pyrazolones to isatin ketimines. The performance of the PCN-supported catalyst is comparable to that of its homogeneous catalyst; the products are obtained in high yields up to 90 % with ee values as high as 99 %. Recycling experiments confirm the stability of the catalyst.
