Back Cover: Magnetic Polystyrene Nanosphere Immobilized TEMPO: A Readily Prepared, Highly Reactive and Recyclable Polymer Catalyst in the Selective Oxidation of Alcohols (ChemCatChem 1/2013)
An alco-hole in one The cover picture shows the use of 2,2,6,6-tetramethyl-piperidine-1-oxyl-modified polymer nanospheres (TEMPO/MNPs) in alcohol oxidation. In their Full Paper on p. 307 ff., J. Wang et al. describe the preparation, characterization, and catalytic studies of TEMPO/MNPs. The catalyst exhibits similar activity and versatility to the homogeneous TEMPO analogues, and its magnetic property ensures the catalyst recycling by simple magnetic decantation.
