ChemCatChem Board Members receive Catalysis Awards
Two ChemCatChem board members have received prestigious awards at the 16th International Congress on Catalysis (ICC) in Beijing, P.R. China. Dr. David Farrusseng, IRCE Lyon, CNRS, (France) has received the International Catalysis Award 2016. He presented a Plenary Lecture entitled "Catalysis Inside a Box" at the ICC.
Prof. Paolo Fornasiero, University of Trieste (Italy) has received the Heinz Heinemann Award 2016. He presented a Plenary Lecture entitled "Hybrid Nanocatalysts for Energy Related Applications" at the ICC.
We congratulate both of them and thank them for their support!

Pumping iron: Fe-containing Cu-based catalysts show a high reactivity and very high selectivity towards 2-methylfuran (85 %+). It is of interest to understand the structural and chemical effects of the Fe promotion (0.15 % w/w) over the Cu catalyst (1 % Cu w/w) and characterize the species responsible for the high hydrogenation performance. In situ diffuse reflectance infrared Fourier transform spectroscopy suggests that FeII species are present on the catalyst surface.

Heterogeneous from homogeneous: The immobilization of Wilkinson's catalyst on silica nanoparticles employing pyridyl linkers is presented. The coordination binding of the catalyst to the pyridyl linker through ligand exchange is proven by solid-state NMR techniques. The immobilized catalyst shows high catalytic activity and excellent stability in leaching tests.

Tubular Underground: The CO oxidation on differently sized Pt particles sputtered on vertically aligned TiO2 nanotubes is investigated. For all particle samples, a steep increase in reaction rate at a defined temperature is observed. At high temperatures the reaction becomes mass-transfer limited.
