2_02/2010Cover Picture: Heterogeneous Catalysis with Alkaline-Earth Metal-Based MOFs: A Green Calcium Catalyst (ChemCatChem 2/2010)

The cover picture shows the olefin hydrogenation reaction inside the porous structure of AEPF-1, a calcium-based metal–organic framework (MOF). In their Communication on page 147 ff., Gutiérrez-Puebla et al. describe the preparation and studies of this material, which is a highly efficient heterogeneous catalyst for the hydrogenation of styrene to form ethylbenzene under mild conditions. The calcium-based MOF is a comparatively cheap and green alternative to conventional precious metal-based alkene hydrogenation catalysts.
