  1. Palladium Supported on Fluorinated Magnesium Hydroxide: An Efficient Catalyst for Hydrogenation under Ambient Conditions (pages 10618–10627)

    Reshma S. Kokane, Dr. Vaibhav R. Acham, Atul B. Kulal, Prof. Erhard Kemnitz, Dr. Mohan K. Dongare and Dr. Shubhangi B. Umbarkar

    Highly efficient palladium based catalyst for room temperature, atmospheric pressure hydrogenation of nitroaromatics and styrene was developed by fluorination of magnesium oxide. Very high catalytic activity was attributed to activation of nitroaromatics on Lewis acidic centre of support and activation of hydrogen by heterolytic cleavage on palladium centre.

  2. Neoteric Synthesis and Biological Activities of Chromenopyrazolones, Tosylchromenopyrazolones, Benzoylcoumarins (pages 10628–10634)

    Chromenopyrazolones, tosylchromenopyrazolones and benzoylcoumarins were prepared by the reaction of salicylaldehyde tosylhydrazones with 3-oxobutanoates. The title compounds were screened for their in vitro anti-microbial, DPPH, ABTS.+ free radical scavenging, α-glucosidase inhibitory and anti-inflammatory activities.

  3. Mesoporous Zirconium Oxophosphate: An Efficient Catalyst for the Synthesis of Cyclic Acetals and Cyclic Carbonates under Solvent-Free Conditions (pages 10595–10602)

    Acetalisation of glycerol and CO2 fixation: Mesoporous zirconium phosphate has been synthesized through EISA method and the resulting material showed high catalytic activity towards acetalization of glycerol and CO2 fixation over epoxides under mild reaction conditions.

  4. Cyclometalated Ru(II)-NHC Complexes as Effective Catalysts for Transfer Hydrogenation: Influence of Wingtip Group on Catalytic Outcome (pages 10603–10608)

    Gunasekaran Balamurugan, Prof. Rengan Ramesh and Dr. Jan Grzegorz Malecki

    Version of Record online: 17 NOV 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/slct.201702102

    A new family of cyclometalated Ru(II) benzene complexes bearing 1-phenyl substituted NHC ligands have been successfully synthesised. The synthesised complexes were demonstrated as effective catalysts for the transfer hydrogenation reaction with broad substrate scope.The conversion of ketones to alcohols was achieved up to 100%.

  5. Enhanced Selectivity and Uptake Capacity of CO2 and Toluene Adsorption in Co0.5M0.33MoS4 (M= Sb or Y) Chalcogels by Impregnated Metal Salts (pages 10609–10617)

    Fatimah Edhaim and Prof. Alexander Rothenberger

    Version of Record online: 17 NOV 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/slct.201702393

    Two high surface area chalcogels Co0.5M0.33MoS4 (M= Sb, Y) have been synthesized using the sol-gel metathesis reaction. These materials showed preferential adsorptions of CO2/(H2 and CH4) and toluene vapor. Toluene and CO2 adsorption capacity can be enhanced by post-synthetic modifications through the addition of different metal species like Li+, Mg2+, and Ni2+. The dispersion of the metal species can create high electric fields on the framework surface leading to high adsorption through Van der Wall forces (electrostatic or quadrupolar interactions).
