This review highlights the use of the bisphosphine ligand group in homogeneous catalysis.
Cation-exchanged zeolites for the selective oxidation of methane to methanol
Development of an ideal methane activation catalyst presents a trade-off between stability and reactivity of the active site that can be achieved by tuning the transition metal cation, active site motif and the zeolite topology.
Phosphine-free cobalt catalyst precursors for the selective hydrogenation of olefins
A phosphine-free Co(NNS)Cl2 complex was used as a catalyst precursor for the highly selective hydrogenation of alkenes in the presence of other functional groups such as ketones.
Micropore blocked core–shell ZSM-22 designed via epitaxial growth with enhanced shape selectivity and high n-dodecane hydroisomerization performance
Core–shell ZSM-22 designed via epitaxy and modified via micropore blockage exhibits high n-dodecane hydroisomerization performance.
Ligand-functionalized Pt nanoparticles as asymmetric heterogeneous catalysts: molecular reaction control by ligand–reactant interactions
Stereoselective control on amino acid functionalized supported Pt nanoparticles by means of dispersion interactions.
Prediction of morphological changes of catalyst materials under reaction conditions by combined ab initio thermodynamics and microkinetic modelling
Microkinetic modeling, ab initio thermodynamics and Wulff–Kaishew construction are used to predict catalyst structural changes under reaction conditions.
α-Oxidative decarboxylation of fatty acids catalysed by cytochrome P450 peroxygenases yielding shorter-alkyl-chain fatty acids
Shorter-alkyl-chain fatty acids such as tridecanoic acid or lauric acid were produced from myristic acid by CYP152 peroxygenases.
Dynamic equilibria in supported ionic liquid phase (SILP) catalysis: in situ IR spectroscopy identifies [Ru(CO)xCly]n species in water gas shift catalysis
Ru-based SILP systems efficiently catalyze the low-temperature water-gas shift reaction (WGSR).
Effect of steam and CO2 on ethane activation over Zn-ZSM-5
Hydrolysis of Zn(II) sites in Zn-ZSM-5 suppresses ethane oligomerization and aromatization.
Performance of edges on carbon for the catalytic hydroxylation of benzene to phenol
The defect site plays an essential role in hydroxyl radical formation from H2O2, which is the rate-controlling step.
