- Multistep Oxidase–Lyase Reactions: Synthesis of Optically Active 2-Hydroxyketones by Using Biobased Aliphatic Alcohols
Dr. María Pérez-Sánchez, Christoph R. Müller and Dr. Pablo Domínguez de María
Article first published online: 24 MAY 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201300093
From natural sources: The utilization of (biobased) aliphatic alcohols for the in situ enzymatic production of aldehydes and the subsequent lyase-catalyzed carboligation is explored for the production of α-hydroxyketones, which are valuable building blocks in organic synthesis. The reactions proceed with high conversion and enantioselectivity and are performed in an integrative manner. BAL=benzaldehyde lyase, FAD=flavin adenine dinucleotide.
- Kinetic Studies on sec-Alcohol Racemization with Dicarbonylchloro(pentabenzylcyclopentadienyl)- and Dicarbonylchloro(pentaphenylcyclopentadienyl)ruthenium Catalysts
Denys Mavrynsky, Prof. Dr. Dmitry Yu. Murzin and Prof. Dr. Reko Leino
Article first published online: 24 MAY 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201300163
Finding the rightk: Detailed kinetic studies on sec-alcohol racemization over high-performance homogeneous cyclopentadienylruthenium catalysts have been performed providing for the first time the calculated racemization rate constants for these systems, relevant for chemo–enzymatic dynamic kinetic resolution of alcohols.
- Selective Catalytic Hydrogenation of Diethyl Oxalate and Related Esters
Carolin Ziebart, Dr. Ralf Jackstell and Prof. Dr. Matthias Beller
Article first published online: 24 MAY 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201300209
Ruthenium shark takes a bite: Oxalic acid esters are smoothly hydrogenated into either alkyl glycolate or ethylene glycol under mild conditions.
- Ethanol Oxidation on TiOxCy-Supported Pt Nanoparticles
Celine Rüdiger, Jassen Brumbarov, Florian Wiesinger, Silvia Leonardi, Dr. Odysseas Paschos, Dr. Carlos Valero Vidal and Dr. Julia Kunze-Liebhäuser
Article first published online: 24 MAY 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201300217
Plane sailing: Planar TiOxCy films are used as model supports for Pt nanoparticles for ethanol oxidation at 25–80 °C. The highest steady-state current density of Pt on TiOxCy at 80 °C was a factor of 170 higher than that of Pt on glassy carbon.
- Multiple One-Pot Reaction Steps using Organically Doped Metallic Hybrid Catalyst
Leora Shapiro and Prof. David Avnir
Article first published online: 24 MAY 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201300261
Positive reinforcement: The composite catalytic-dopant@catalytic-metal (an organic catalyst entrapped within a catalytic metal) synergistically outperforms the combined activities of each individual catalyst. Specifically, the dual catalytic activity of Nafion@Pd is investigated by combining elimination with either hydrogenation or disproportion in a one-pot, two-catalytic-step process, which proceeds to completion with only the catalytic composite.
