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!

Benign biorefinery route: Various value-added dithioacetals are catalytically synthesized in near quantitative yields from solvent-free thioacetalization of biomass-derived aldehydes at room temperature. The pronounced performance is obtained with large-pore zeolites with moderate acidity and an appropriate distribution of Brønsted/Lewis acid sites.

All about acetals: Terminal acetals are synthesized from various vinylarenes and diols using a PdCl2(MeCN)2/methoxy-p-benzoquinone (MeOBQ)/CuCl catalyst system and 1 atm of O2 under mild reaction conditions by the anti-Markovnikov nucleophilic attack of an oxygen nucleophile on the coordinated vinylarenes. MeOBQ acts as a ligand for Pd to accelerate the reaction.
