Recent Advances on Computational Investigations of N-Heterocyclic Carbene Catalyzed Cycloaddition/Annulation Reactions: Mechanism and Origin of Selectivities

Recent Advances on Computational Investigations of N-Heterocyclic Carbene Catalyzed Cycloaddition/Annulation Reactions: Mechanism and Origin of Selectivities

Carbene catalyzed: The developments of theoretical studies on NHC-catalyzed [n+2] (n=2, 3, 4) and other cycloaddition/annulation reactions have been summarized in this review. The detailed mechanisms, role of NHC, and origin of chemo- and stereoselectivity of these kinds of reactions were illustrated.

Precisely Controlled Polymerization of Styrene and Conjugated Dienes by Group 3 Single-Site Catalysts

Precisely Controlled Polymerization of Styrene and Conjugated Dienes by Group 3 Single-Site Catalysts

A solo performance: In this Review, a variety of group 3 single-site catalysts for the precise control of regio- and stereo- selective (co)polymerizations of styrene and conjugated dienes are systematically introduced. The activities, selectivities, molecular weights and molecular weight distributions dependent on the structure of the catalysts, cocatalysts, and reaction conditions etc. are detailed discussed.

Mechanisms of Two-Electron versus Four-Electron Reduction of Dioxygen Catalyzed by Earth-Abundant Metal Complexes

Mechanisms of Two-Electron versus Four-Electron Reduction of Dioxygen Catalyzed by Earth-Abundant Metal Complexes

Two or four? The development of highly efficient inexpensive earth-abundant metal-based oxygen electrocatalysts that will replace noble metal-based ones requires an understanding of the catalytic mechanisms of the two-electron/two-proton and four-electron/four-proton reductions of dioxygen, which are important processes for fuel cell technologies and are typically catalyzed by costly Pt-based electrocatalysts. This Review is focused on the factors that control these reductions, catalyzed by earth-abundant metal complexes.

Zeolitic Materials for DeNOx Selective Catalytic Reduction

Zeolitic Materials for DeNOx Selective Catalytic Reduction

This review gives a chronological progress of zeolite catalysts specifically highlighting CHA zeolites. The synthesis of CHA zeolites, the structure–activity relationships, as well as the reaction mechanisms and kinetics are summarized. A critical outlook is given together with expected research directions in developing zeolite-based catalysts for deNOx.

Heteroatom-Doped Carbonaceous Photocatalysts for Solar Fuel Production and Environmental Remediation

Heteroatom-Doped Carbonaceous Photocatalysts for Solar Fuel Production and Environmental Remediation

Heteroatom doping is a powerful tool for modulating electronic structure, geometrical structure, surface chemistry, and subsequent electronic conductivity, optical properties, and photocatalysis of carbon materials. This Review emphasizes the synthesis, properties, and photocatalytic applications of doped carbonaceous materials, discusses the fundamental understanding of promoting effect of doping, and also outlines the challenges and future perspectives.
