  1. Water-Assisted Selective Hydrodeoxygenation of Lignin-Derived Guaiacol to Monooxygenates

    Dr. Ji Sun Yoon, Jae-Wook Choi, Dr. Dong Jin Suh, Prof. Kangtaek Lee, Prof. Hyunjoo Lee and Dr. Jeong-Myeong Ha

    Article first published online: 4 AUG 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201500345

    Wet stripping effect: Effects of water for the hydrodeoxygenation of lignin-derived guaiacol were observed, and water appeared to improve the removal of the first oxygen atom of guaiacol producing monooxygenates.

  2. Hierarchically Structured MnO2-Co/C Nanocomposites: Highly Efficient and Magnetically Recyclable Catalysts for the Aerobic Oxidation of Alcohols

    Dr. Jian Zhi, Dr. Sharon Mitchell, Prof. Dr. Javier Pérez-Ramírez and Prof. Dr. Oliver Reiser

    Article first published online: 3 AUG 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201500549

    A strong attraction: Porous MnO2 microspheres distributed around carbon-coated cobalt nanoparticles are developed; their performance rivals that of Pd-based catalysts for the selective oxidation of alcohols. Excellent recyclability is conveniently achieved by magnetic decantation and is demonstrated over 10 consecutive cycles with no apparent material or performance loss.

  3. Strong Metal–Support Interactions for Palladium Supported on TiO2 Catalysts in the Heterogeneous Hydrogenation with Parahydrogen

    Dr. Kirill V. Kovtunov, Danila A. Barskiy, Oleg G. Salnikov, Dudari B. Burueva, Alexander K. Khudorozhkov, Dr. Andrey V. Bukhtiyarov, Dr. Igor P. Prosvirin, Dr. Evgeny Y. Gerasimov, Prof. Valerii I. Bukhtiyarov and Prof. Igor V. Koptyug

    Article first published online: 3 AUG 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201500618

    The force is strong with this one: The observation of the strong metal–support interaction effect in Pd/TiO2 catalysts along with the formation of the Pdδ+ state and a decrease in the parahydrogen-induced polarization effects after high-temperature hydrogen treatment are demonstrated.

  4. Vanadium-Substituted Tungstophosphoric Acids as Efficient Catalysts for Visible-Light-Driven Oxygenation of Cyclohexane by Dioxygen

    Dr. Senpei Tang, Dr. Wenfeng Wu, Prof. Zaihui Fu, Shuai Zou, Dr. Yachun Liu, Dr. Haihong Zhao, Steven Robert Kirk and Prof. Dulin Yin

    Article first published online: 3 AUG 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201500314

    Lightly acidic: Two, and especially three, vanadium-atom-substituted tungstophosphoric acids, with the help of HCl aqueous solution, can efficiently catalyze the oxygenation of cyclohexane by dioxygen to cyclohexanol and cyclohexanone under visible-light irradiation.

  5. Structural Engineering of Electrocatalysts for the Hydrogen Evolution Reaction: Order or Disorder?

    Dr. Junfeng Xie and Prof. Yi Xie

    Article first published online: 3 AUG 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201500396

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    Order or disorder? Hydrogen-evolving electrocatalysts with ordered and disordered structures are reviewed in detail. The emerging strategies to fabricate such catalysts are summarized to provide guidance for future design of efficient electrocatalysts for hydrogen production.
