Inside Cover: γ-Al2O3-Supported and Unsupported (Ni)MoS2 for the Hydrodenitrogenation of Quinoline in the Presence of Dibenzothiophene (ChemCatChem 2/2014)
I want to break free (from your nitrogen): The inside cover picture shows the stepwise removal of nitrogen from hydrocarbons catalyzed by well-characterized Ni-promoted MoS2. In their Full Paper on p. 485 ff., O. Y. Gutiérrez, J. A. Lercher et al. describe the reaction mechanism of the denitrogenation of quinoline in the presence of dibenzothiophene and the detailed physicochemical characterization of the MoS2-based materials that catalyze the process. The effects of support and promoter on the features of oxide precursors, the corresponding sulfide catalysts and, thus, their catalytic behavior are revealed. There is a clear dispersion effect of Al2O3, which influences the NiSx-MoS2 interactions and the catalytic chemistry.
