A multifaceted role of a mobile bismuth promoter in alcohol amination over cobalt catalysts

Bi as a mobile metal promoter on the surface of Co leads to multiple effects with enhancement of activity, selectivity and stability due to easy reduction, removal of strongly adsorbed species and suppression of amine coupling reactions.

About this collection

We are delighted to introduce the 2020 Green Chemistry Emerging Investigators themed collection, which highlights the excellent research being carried out by early career researchers across the breadth of green chemistry.

Each contributor was nominated by a member of the Editorial or Advisory Board as an outstanding researcher making a significant contribution to the green chemistry field.

New articles will be added to this collection as they are published.

Congratulations to all those whose work is featured. Join us in celebrating their contributions!
