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!

Hydrodeoxygenation without cleavage: Pt–MoOx/TiO2 shows high activity for the selective hydrodeoxygenation of fatty acids, triglycerides, and ketones under solvent-free conditions to give n-alkanes without C−C bond cleavage. H2 is dissociated by Pt sites and the C=O group coordinated to the Mon+ site undergoes Lewis acid activation.

A little bit of structure: A general coordination replication strategy is developed to fabricate hierarchical copper-based metal–organic framework (MOF) arrays by using Cu(OH)2 nanorod arrays as a template and metal source. Owing to their unique structural advantages, the as-prepared hierarchical MOF-2 nanoarrays exhibit excellent catalytic activity and cycling stability in heterogeneous catalysis as a structured catalyst.
