Thumbs up or thumbs down: As stabilizers and structure-determining components, organic surfactants are irreplaceable in many colloidal nanoparticle preparation methods. The effect of ligands on the structure and catalytic performance of mono- and bimetallic Pt and PtSn nanoparticles toward the selective hydrogenation of acetylene is investigated.
- Ag/AgBr-Grafted Graphite-like Carbon Nitride with Enhanced Plasmonic Photocatalytic Activity under Visible Light
Dr. Yang-Sen Xu and Prof. Dr. Wei-De Zhang
Article first published online: 17 MAY 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201300144
Composite success: Ag/AgBr-grafted graphite-like carbon nitride (g-C3N4) is fabricated by the in situ photoreduction of AgBr/g-C3N4 hybrids prepared by a deposition–precipitation method. Compared with bare g-C3N4 and Ag/AgBr nanoparticles, respective 28-fold and 6-fold enhancements in the degradation rate toward rhodamine B are observed over Ag/AgBr/g-C3N4 hybrids under visible-light irradiation.
- A Microfluidic System for the Continuous Recycling of Unmodified Homogeneous Palladium Catalysts through Liquid/Liquid Phase Separation
Prof. Dr. Pengfei Li, Dr. Jason S. Moore and Prof. Dr. Klavs F. Jensen
Article first published online: 16 MAY 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201300054
A parting of the waves: A prototype microflow system for the continuous recycling of homogeneous catalysts through liquid/liquid phase separation was developed and its effectiveness demonstrated in a challenging palladium-catalyzed hydroxylation reaction. The unmodified catalyst is recycled under standard reaction conditions by using a combination of chemical and engineering methods.
- Interfacial Engineering of Platinum Catalysts for Fuel Cells: Methanol Oxidation is Dramatically Improved by Polymer Coating on a Platinum Catalyst
Prof. Tsuyohiko Fujigaya, Minoru Okamoto, Dr. Kazuya Matsumoto, Prof. Kenji Kaneko and Prof. Naotoshi Nakashima
Article first published online: 16 MAY 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201300157
All coated up: Platinum nanoparticles loaded on multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWNTs) are coated with pyridine-containing polybenzimidazole (PyPBI). Interestingly, although a slight decrease in the accessibility of methanol is observed after coating, the methanol oxidation activity of Pt dramatically improves after coating with PyPBI.
- Insight into the Mechanism of the Preferential Oxidation of Carbon Monoxide by Using Isotope-Modulated Excitation IR Spectroscopy
Dr. Nobutaka Maeda, Fabian Meemken and Prof. Dr. Alfons Baiker
Article first published online: 16 MAY 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201300172
DRIFTing through time: Modulation excitation in situ diffuse-reflectance IR Fourier transform (DRIFT) spectroscopy with periodic isotopic perturbation (D2 and 13CO) has been applied to elucidate the pathway for the preferential oxidation of carbon monoxide (PROX) over a commercial Pt/alumina catalyst. The time- and phase-domain IR spectra suggest a water-assisted pathway for the preferential oxidation reaction.
