Restricting Effect of Solvent Aggregates on Distribution and Mobility of CuCl2 in Homogenous Catalysis

Wang, Yongtao; Wang, Guanqi; Yao, Jia; Li, Haoran

Extensive experimental and theoretical studies have proven the existence of solvent aggregates in alcohols, and some attempts have been made to explore the uneven distribution of solutes. Here, we studied the distribution and mobility of CuCl2 in 3-hexanol and ethanol and investigated the aerobic oxidation of 2,3,6-trimethylphenol under these systems.…

Tailoring the Hydrophobicity of Mesoporous Organosilica for Protein Trapping and Supported Catalysis

Osta, Oriana; Bombled, Marianne; Partouche, David; Gallier, Florian; Lubin-Germain, Nadège; Brodie-Linder, Nancy; Alba-Simionesco, Christiane

We propose a method to enhance lysozyme trapping and supported-Copper catalysis when confined in organosilica materials. The direct synthesis presented here allows the control of the silica surface hydrophobicity by uniform introduction of methyl or phenyl groups. As a result, the lysozyme trapping is observed to be 3.2 times more…

Highly Selective Continuous Flow Hydrogenation of Cinnamaldehyde to Cinnamyl Alcohol in a Pt/SiO2 Coated Tube Reactor

Bai, Yang; Cherkasov, Nikolay; Huband, Steven; Walker, David; Walton, Richard; Rebrov, Evgeny;

A novel continuous flow process for selective hydrogenation of α, β-unsaturated aldehyde (cinnamaldehyde, CAL) to the unsaturated alcohol (cinnamyl alcohol, COL) has been reported in a tube reactor coated with a Pt/SiO2 catalyst. A 90% selectivity towards the unsaturated alcohol was obtained at the aldehyde conversion of 98.8%. This is…

Effects of calcination and activation conditions on ordered mesoporous carbon supported iron catalysts for production of lower olefins from synthesis gas

Oschatz, M.; Deelen, T. W. van; Weber, J. L.; Lamme, W. S.; Wang, G.; Goderis, B.; Verkinderen, O.; Dugulan, A. I.; Jong, K. P. de

Lower C2–C4 olefins are important commodity chemicals usually produced by steam cracking of naphtha or fluid catalytic cracking of vacuum gas oil. The Fischer–Tropsch synthesis of lower olefins (FTO) with iron-based catalysts uses synthesis gas as an alternative feedstock. Nanostructured carbon materials are widely applied as supports for the iron…

Photocatalytic degradation of bisphenol A induced by dense nanocavities inside aligned 2D-TiO2 nanostructures

Bakardjieva, Snejana; Fajgar, Radek; Jakubec, Ivo; Koci, Eva; Zhigunov, Alexander; Chatzisymeon, Efthalia; Davididou, Konstantina

The preparation of materials with aligned porosity in the nanometer range is of technological importance for a wide range of applications in molecular filtration, biomaterials and catalysis. Herein we present the advantages offered by cryo – lyophilisation technique as a smart and green non-standard concept to produce dense regular polyhedral…
