Graphene for Hard Graft The cover picture shows a scheme of the two-step oxidation process of 1-phenylethanol to acetophenone over a graphene oxide surface realized by migration of hydrogen atoms from molecule to catalyst with its partial reduction proposed from DFT calculations. In their full paper on p. 1844 ff., Danil W. Boukhvalov et al. report on their computational investigation of the catalytic properties of graphene oxide. They used the oxidation of benzyl alcohol to benzaldehyde as their model reaction.
