- The Effect of Water on Furan Conversion over ZSM-5
Christopher J. Gilbert, Juliana S. Espindola, Prof. William C. Conner Jr., Prof. Jorge O. Trierweiler and Prof. George W. Huber
Article first published online: 25 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201402390
Pump it up: The addition of water to the catalytic fast pyrolysis of furan over ZSM-5 increases conversion of furan with increasing water partial pressure [42.8 to 84.8 %, as water partial pressure is increased from 0 to 212 Torr (0 to 28 kPa)]. Yields of propylene and CO2 increased from 2.9 to 44.9 % and 0.7 to 16.4 %, respectively, as water partial pressure increased. Thus, co-feeding water with furan over ZSM-5 promotes the hydrolysis of furan to produce propylene and CO2.
- gem-Selective Cross-Dimerization and Cross-Trimerization of Alkynes with Silylacetylenes Promoted by a Rhodium–Pyridine–N-Heterocyclic Carbene Catalyst
Ramón Azpíroz, Dr. Laura Rubio-Pérez, Dr. Ricardo Castarlenas, Prof. Jesús J. Pérez-Torrente and Prof. Luis A. Oro
Article first published online: 25 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201402327
What a gem: The rhodium(I) complex [RhCl(IPr)(η2-coe)(py)] [IPr=1,3-bis-(2,6-diisopropylphenyl)imidazol-2-carbene, coe=cyclooctene, and py=pyridine] has proven to be an effective catalyst precursor for the cross-dimerization and -trimerization of terminal alkynes with alkylsilylacetylenes, which give enynes and dienynes with high regio- and stereoselectivity.
- Interaction between Palladium Nanoparticles and Surface-Modified Carbon Nanotubes: Role of Surface Functionalities
Dr. Bingsen Zhang, Dr. Lidong Shao, Dr. Wei Zhang, Xiaoyan Sun, Xiaoli Pan and Prof. Dang Sheng Su
Article first published online: 25 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201402272
The heat is on, in situ: The effect of surface functionalities on the stability of palladium nanoparticles supported on carbon nanotubes has been investigated by in situ heating in a transmission electron microscope, which reveals that the functionalized surface of carbon nanotube supports is dominant in the sintering and ripening process of catalytic nanoparticles.
- Synthesis and Properties of Core–Shell Metal–Ceramic Microstructures and their Application as Heterogeneous Catalysts
Jieun Kim and Prof. Doohwan Lee
Article first published online: 24 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201402274
You can call me Al: Simple hydrothermal synthesis forms unique core–shell metal–ceramic microstructures with an Al core encapsulated by a crystalline metal oxide shell of various morphological and compositional features. The Rh/MgAl2O4@Al catalyst demonstrates superior Rh dispersion, stability, and an enhanced glycerol reforming rate because of the facilitated heat and mass transport.
- Rapid Discovery of a Photocatalyst for Air Purification by High-Throughput Screening
Dr. Song Sun, Fan Zhang, Dr. Zeming Qi, Dr. Jianjun Ding, Dr. Jun Bao and Prof. Chen Gao
Article first published online: 24 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201402332
Screen if you wanna go faster: A photocatalyst for air purification is high-throughput screened by the developed combinatorial method by using an infrared microscope equipped with a homemade in situ reaction cell and a gas dosing system. 1.0 % La3+/0.4 % Nd3+–TiO2 was rapidly picked out as an active composite for toluene degradation with a degradation rate of 93.4 % in 2 h.
