  1. Aqueous Phase Hydrogenation of Quinoline to Decahydroquinoline Catalyzed by Ruthenium Nanoparticles Supported on Glucose-Derived Carbon Spheres

    Deming Zhu, Hongbin Jiang, Lei Zhang, Xueli Zheng, Haiyan Fu, Maolin Yuan, Prof. Hua Chen and Prof. Ruixiang Li

    Article first published online: 21 AUG 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201402519

    Mystic spheres: Highly active and selective quinoline hydrogenation to decahydroquinoline under mild conditions in water is performed with ruthenium nanoparticles supported on glucose-derived carbon spheres (CSP). This is attributed to hydrogen bonding between quinoline and hydroxyl groups of the support and a π–π stacking interaction between quinoline and the aromatic system of the carbon support.

  2. Catalytic Steam Gasification of Cellulose Using Reactive Flash Volatilization

    Fan Liang Chan and Dr. Akshat Tanksale

    Article first published online: 21 AUG 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201402434

    Syngas in a flash: The use of Ni-based catalysts in the reactive flash volatilization of cellulose is demonstrated to produce tar-free synthesis gas in 50 ms residence time in the reactor. Re, Rh, and Ru promoted the Ni catalysts supported on γ-alumina to catalyze cellulose gasification to produce synthesis gas with a controlled H2/CO ratio.

  3. Copper(I)-Catalyzed Highly Regio- and Stereoselective Hydrosilylation of Terminal Alkynes with Boryldisiloxane

    Dr. Hui Zhou and Dr. Yan-Bo Wang

    Article first published online: 21 AUG 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201402405

    Put a pin in it: The highly regio- and stereoselective hydrosilylation of terminal alkynes with 1,1,3,3-tetramethyl-1,3-(pinacolboryl)disiloxane as a novel silicon source with the use of a copper catalyst gives functionalized (β,β)- (E)-vinyldisiloxanes in good yields. Further chemical transformation through Pd-catalyzed cross-coupling results in the synthesis of unsymmetrical 1,2- disubstituted (E)-alkenes.

  4. Copper(I) Oxide Nanoparticles in Glycerol: A Convenient Catalyst for Cross-Coupling and Azide–Alkyne Cycloaddition Processes

    Dr. Faouzi Chahdoura, Christian Pradel and Prof. Montserrat Gómez

    Article first published online: 21 AUG 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201402214

    Cop a look at this! Copper(I) oxide nanoparticles dispersed in neat glycerol are active and highly selective in Cu-catalyzed C[BOND]heteroatom couplings and azide–alkyne cycloadditions, which include one-pot multistep processes and allow easy catalyst recycling.

  5. Pd/CeO2−x Nanorod Catalysts for CO Oxidation: Insights into the Origin of Their Regenerative Ability at Room Temperature

    Yunyun Zhou, Neil J. Lawrence, Tai-Sing Wu, Dr. Jing Liu, Patrick Kent, Prof. Yun-Liang Soo and Prof. Chin Li Cheung

    Article first published online: 21 AUG 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201402243

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    Activate, use, and reactivate: The activated Pd/CeO2−x catalyst after use for carbon monoxide oxidation can be reactivated by exposing it to ambient conditions. The regeneration of the active disordered palladium oxide species from metallic palladium on the used catalyst can be facilitated by increasing the density of oxygen vacancy defects in the ceria support.
