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!

    Come on arene! The selective hydrogenation of a wide range of arenes and heteroarenes to the corresponding alicyclic products in yields up to 72 % is achieved over in situ generated active Ru nanoparticles immobilized on carbon. The unique structural advantages of the organometallic ruthenium precursor to activate formic acid are crucial to generate active Ru nanoparticles immobilized on carbon and to achieve enhanced activity through a tandem catalytic process.

    Stuck like PB: A newly synthesized boron-containing pincer ligand with an aliphatic backbone is treated with [Ir(coe)2Cl]2 (coe=cyclooctene) to result in (P-B-P)Ir(H)Cl. A catalyst system comprising this Ir complex and KOtBu shows excellent performance in releasing 1 equivalent of H2 from the N,N-dimethylamine–borane complex at a low catalyst loading (0.05 mol %) with an initial turnover frequency (TOF) of approximately 3400 h−1.
