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!

    What a nut! An in situ generated catalyst delivers a terminal selectivity of 74 % in the isomerizing hydroformylation of cashew nut shell liquid and the synthetic utility of this strategy has been demonstrated by converting the resultant aldehydes into unsymmetrical α,ω-difunctional molecules.

  3. Hierarchical Ti-Beta Obtained by Simultaneous Desilication and Titanation as an Efficient Catalyst for Cyclooctene Epoxidation

    Anja Werner, Paul Bludovsky, Carolin Selzer, Ulrike Koch, Dr. Lars Giebeler, Dr. Steffen Oswald and Prof. Stefan Kaskel

    Version of Record online: 22 SEP 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201700633

    Holey moly! The introduction of large pores is known to be an efficient method to overcome performance constraints of zeolites caused by diffusional limitations. The substitution of framework atoms with Ti is essential for epoxidation catalysis. Combining both post-synthesis steps provides high-performance epoxidation catalysts particularly for large substrates at significantly reduced cost.
