  1. Recyclable Heterogeneous and Low-Loading Homogeneous Chiral Imidazolidinone Catalysts for α-Alkylation of Aldehydes

    Dr. Anna Maria Pia Salvo, Dr. Francesco Giacalone, Prof. Renato Noto and Prof. Michelangelo Gruttadauria

    Article first published online: 23 APR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201400030

    Recycling drive: Is it possible to have a supported chiral imidazolidinone catalyst that is recyclable without loss in activity or a homogeneous counterpart catalytically active at low loading? We have investigated this topic using the α-alkylation of aldehydes as a benchmark reaction (see figure).

  2. Microporous Carbon and Mesoporous Silica by Use of Twin Polymerization: An Integrated Experimental and Theoretical Approach to Precursor Reactivity

    Philipp Kitschke, Prof. Dr. Alexander A. Auer, Dr. Tina Löschner, Dr. Andreas Seifert, Prof. Dr. Stefan Spange, Dr. Tobias Rüffer, Prof. Dr. Heinrich Lang and Prof. Dr. Michael Mehring

    Article first published online: 22 APR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201402029

    On the double: The reactivity of a series of silicon-containing spirocyclic compounds towards both thermally induced and proton-assisted twin polymerization has been examined. The properties of the as-obtained hybrid materials and the porous materials formed after consecutive treatments have been studied (see figure). Density functional calculations and calorimetry support a reactivity scale based on the Hammett substituent constants of the compounds.

  3. Heterojunction Ag–TiO2 Nanopillars for Visible-Light-Driven Photocatalytic H2 Production

    Dr. Yang Qu, Dr. Wei Zhou, Dr. Zhiyu Ren, Dr. Chungui Tian, Dr. Jialin Li and Prof. Honggang Fu

    Article first published online: 16 APR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201402012

    Under the sun: Heterojunction Ag–TiO2 nanopillars have been fabricated by a one-pot method. They exhibit high photocatalytic H2 production efficiency under visible-light irradiation owing to the contacted junctions and surface plasmon resonance effect, which result in effective charge separation and solar energy utilization (see figure).

  4. Receptor with an Active Methylene Group as Binding Site for Extraction of Inorganic Fluoride Ions from Seawater

    Madhuprasad and Dr. Darshak R. Trivedi

    Article first published online: 16 APR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201402018

    Watercolors: A receptor based on a triphenylphosphonium salt that contains an active methylene group has been designed and synthesized for the colorimetric detection and extraction of F ions from seawater with 99 % efficiency. The process results in an instantaneous color change (see figure).

  5. Surface Functionalization for Synergistic Catalysis: Silica–Alumina-Supported Cationic Indium and Organic Base for Cyanoethoxycarbonylation

    Dr. Ken Motokura, Yasuhiro Ito, Hiroto Noda, Dr. Akimitsu Miyaji, Dr. Sho Yamaguchi and Prof. Dr. Toshihide Baba

    Article first published online: 15 APR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201402004

    Close relationship: A silica–alumina (SiO2–Al2O3) surface possessing both In3+ cations and an amine base is described. These two functions on same solid surface act as acidic and basic units in the catalytic cyanoethoxycarbonylation of aldehyde (see picture).
