    Ionic liquids (ILs) as perspective catalysts for biodiesel production especially form high FFAs oils and convert their triglycerides into esters. It is highly recyclable and reusable catalysts. Now a days ionic liquids have a lot of applications and due to their unique properties, they are getting popularity in academics as well as in industries. This study also presents the protocol for ionic liquids to be used as catalysts for biodiesel production by transesterification process.

    Make the difference: Starting from easy to make building blocks the synthesis of enriched scalemic mixture of (-)-Nutlin-3 has been accomplished. The use of HB amide thiourea catalyst for the desymmetrization of meso-diamine derivative furnished different enantiomers depending on the nature of the acylating agent.

  3. A Facile and Versatile Electrochemical Tuning of Graphene for Oxygen Reduction Reaction in Acidic, Neutral and Alkali media (pages 8541–8552)

    The electrocatalytic activity of carbon surfaces were enhanced by incorporating nitrogen by a low temperature electrochemical approach. Herein, the nitrogen was incorporated on graphene (N−Gr), and the resulted N−Gr shows pH dependent electrocatalytic activity towards oxygen reduction reaction and four electron reduction of O2 in alkali and PBS. The N−Gr shows similar Tafel slope to that of Pt in alkali, and it possesses long term stability and durability with better tolerance to fuel cross-over.
