  1. ZnIn2S4: A Photocatalyst for the Selective Aerobic Oxidation of Amines to Imines under Visible Light

    Lin Ye and Prof. Zhaohui Li

    Article first published online: 23 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201402360

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    Gasping for air: The highly efficient selective aerobic oxidation of amines to imines by using air as the oxidant is achieved over ZnIn2S4 under visible-light irradiation. This transformation involves the oxygenation of amines to form aldehydes, followed by nucleophilic addition of the amines to afford the final imines. e=Electrons, h+=holes.

  2. Enhanced Au[BOND]Pd Activity in the Direct Synthesis of Hydrogen Peroxide using Nanostructured Titanate Nanotube Supports

    Dr. Laura Torrente-Murciano, Dr. Qian He, Prof. Graham J. Hutchings, Prof. Christopher J. Kiely and Prof. David Chadwick

    Article first published online: 23 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201402361

    Getting your gold together: Extremely small gold-palladium clusters are stabilized by titanate nanotubes and show extraordinary catalytic properties for the direct synthesis of hydrogen peroxide.

  3. A New Combustion Route to Synthesize Mixed Valence Vanadium Oxide Heterojunction Composites as Visible-Light-Driven Photocatalysts

    Dr. Baojiang Jiang, Xiuxia Peng, Yang Qu, Dr. Hong Wang, Dr. Chungui Tian, Dr. Qingjiang Pan, Dr. Mingxia Li, Dr. Wei Zhou and Prof. Honggang Fu

    Article first published online: 23 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201402336

    Let it burn: A new vanadium oxide heterojunction (VO2@V6O13) is fabricated by using a facile and direct combustion method. The heterojunction photocatalyst demonstrates improved photocatalytic activity and structural stability in the degradation of atrazine pesticide and methylene blue under visible light irradiation. Furthermore, this straightforward method has promising applications in the fabrication of other heterostructure photocatalysts.

  4. Double Bond Isomerisation and Migration—New Playgrounds for Transition Metal-Catalysis

    Prof. Dr. Gerhard Hilt

    Article first published online: 23 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201402341

    Getting your bonds in a twist: Selective transition metal-catalyzed isomerization and migration of double bonds in alkenes and 1,3-dienes are attracting increasing attention. The recent advances in this field exhibit inspiring new perspectives for applications of such reactions in the future.

  5. CuII and Cu0 Catalyzed Mono Borylation of Unsaturated Hydrocarbons with B2pin2: Entering into the Water

    Dr. Gaj Stavber and Prof. Dr. Zdenko Časar

    Article first published online: 23 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201402176

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    Purity in water: An interesting course of development took place recently in the area of boron additions to unsaturated precursors. The first CuII and Cu0 catalyzed B2pin2 additions to alkenes and alkynes in/on pure aqueous media evolved from discovery on racemic versions to asymmetric variants and pharmaceutical applications. All presented methods provide significantly simplified catalytic systems and perform with high efficiency and stereoselectivity in/on pure water.
