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!

Reduction first: A series of homoleptic monoanionic nickel dithiolene complexes are employed as electrocatalysts in the hydrogen-evolution reaction in acetonitrile with trifluoroacetic acid as the proton source. DFT calculations indicate that, for the two proposed pathways, protonation at sulfur follows the reduction to the dianion, in agreement with experimental data.

The effects of alcohol: Calculations at the DFT-D level coupled with FTIR spectroscopy of CO adsorbed at 100 K allows the morphology of disordered MgCl2 nanocrystals formed in the presence of different alcohols as Lewis bases to be predicted and validated.

Three in one-pot: A novel porous zirconium-based metal–organic framework (MOF) is synthesized and explored in the one-pot tandem photo-oxidative Passerini three-component reaction of alcohols to afford α-acyloxy amides at room temperature without using any additive. Multiple functionalities into the MOF enrich its application in the photocatalysis and catalysis.
