- Formic Acid Dehydrogenation Catalysed by Tris(TPPTS) Ruthenium Species: Mechanism of the Initial “Fast” Cycle
Arnaud Thevenon, Ewan Frost-Pennington, Dr. Gan Weijia, Dr. Andrew F. Dalebrook and Prof. Gábor Laurenczy
Article first published online: 18 SEP 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201402410
Two phosphines or three? Ruthenium m-triphenylphosphinetrisulfonate (TPPTS) complexes are highly active for aqueous phase formic acid dehydrogenation. Using a series of NMR experiments, several active intermediates that each bind three TPPTS units have been identified. The system activity decreases with the loss of one phosphine ligand upon progression to the slower catalytic cycle.
- Self-Regenerative Property of Nanocrystalline Ce0.89M0.11O2−y (M=Pd, Rh) Mixed Oxides
Dr. Michalina Kurnatowska, Dr. Manfred E. Schuster, Dr. Wlodzimierz Mista and Prof. Leszek Kepinski
Article first published online: 18 SEP 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201402480
Born to rise again: Self-regenerative properties of nanocrystalline Ce0.89M0.11O2−y (M=noble metal, e.g., Pd and Rh) mixed oxides are investigated by applying the reduction–oxidation treatment. The redox properties of Ce0.89Rh0.11O2−y are completely reversible after the reduction–oxidation treatment, whereas those of Ce0.89Pd0.11O2−y are only partially reversible.
- Mild and Selective Hydrogenation of Nitro Compounds using Palladium Nanoparticles Supported on Amino-Functionalized Mesocellular Foam
Dr. Oscar Verho, Karl P. J. Gustafson, Anuja Nagendiran, Dr. Cheuk-Wai Tai and Prof. Jan-E. Bäckvall
Article first published online: 18 SEP 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201402488
Under green-chemistry conditions: The utilization of a heterogeneous catalyst comprised of Pd nanoparticles supported on aminopropyl-functionalized siliceous mesocellular foam (Pd0–AmP–MCF) is presented for the selective hydrogenation of a variety of nitro compounds to the corresponding amines under mild conditions. The catalyst exhibits broad substrate scope, high stability, and low metal leaching, and can be easily integrated into a larger scale continuous-flow hydrogenation reactor.
- Tuning the Selectivity in the Hydrogenation of Aromatic Ketones Catalyzed by Similar Ruthenium and Rhodium Nanoparticles
Dr. Jessica Llop Castelbou, Emma Bresó-Femenia, Dr. Pascal Blondeau, Prof. Dr. Bruno Chaudret, Prof. Dr. Sergio Castillón, Prof. Dr. Carmen Claver and Dr. Cyril Godard
Article first published online: 18 SEP 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201402524
Name that tune: The selectivity of the arene versus ketone reduction of aryl ketones using Ru and Rh nanoparticles stabilized by triphenylphosphine and diphenylphosphinobutane depends on the metal, the stabilizing ligand, and structural factors in the substrates. Some general clues to understand this process are provided.
- Grooves of Bundled Single-Walled Carbon Nanotubes Dramatically Enhance the Activity of the Oxygen Reduction Reaction
Dr. Tsuyohiko Fujigaya, Junichi Morita and Prof. Dr. Naotoshi Nakashima
Article first published online: 18 SEP 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201402565
Feeling groovy: Single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) coated with a nitrogen-doped graphitic structure (N-GS) are synthesized. The grooves of the bundled composite (i.e., SWNT/N-GS) dramatically enhance the activity of the oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) owing to superior O2 adsorption on the grooves. MWNT=multiwalled carbon nanotube, RHE=reversible hydrogen electrode.
