Structure–Activity Correlations for Brønsted Acid, Lewis Acid, and Photocatalyzed Reactions of Exfoliated Crystalline Niobium Oxides
Dr. Yusuke Koito, Dr. Gregory J. Rees, Prof. John V. Hanna, Molly M. J. Li, Yung-Kang Peng, Dr. Tim Puchtler, Prof. Robert Taylor, Tong Wang, Hisayoshi Kobayashi, Ivo F. Teixeira, Dr. M. Abdullah Khan, Hannah T. Kreissl and Prof. S. C. Edman Tsang
The acid test: Exfoliated crystalline niobium oxides that contain exposed but interconnected NbO6 octahedra with different degrees of structural distortion and defects catalyze Brønsted acid, Lewis acid, and photocatalytic reactions efficiently. The catalytic performances of these reactions are highly dependent on the structural connectivity of the NbO6 octahedra, their distortions, and their defects. The structure–activity relationships are presented.
One-Pot Facile Fabrication of Multiple Nickel Nanoparticles Confined in Microporous Silica Giving a Multiple-Cores@Shell Structure as a Highly Efficient Catalyst for Methane Dry Reforming

Ni imprisoned in SiO2: A novel structured catalyst with multiple ultra-small Ni nanoparticles (4.3 nm) as the core and microporous silica as the shell was rationally fabricated by a facial one-pot reverse micelle method and applied for methane dry reforming. The catalyst displayed superior activity and carbon resistance.
