A strategic Ser/Cys exchange in the catalytic triad unlocks an acyltransferase-mediated synthesis of thioesters and tertiary amides

Nature Catalysis, Published online: 30 November 2020; doi:10.1038/s41929-020-00539-0Preparative methods for thioester and tertiary amide formation are currently missing in the biocatalysis repertoire. Now, a mutation of serine to cysteine in the catalytic triad of an acyltransferase expands its synthetic capability to generate these compounds while...

Performance enhancement and degradation mechanism identification of a single-atom Co–N–C catalyst for proton exchange membrane fuel cells

Nature Catalysis, Published online: 30 November 2020; doi:10.1038/s41929-020-00546-1Platinum-group-metal-free, non-iron catalysts are highly desirable for the oxygen reduction reaction at proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cell cathodes, as they avoid the detrimental Fenton reactions. Now, a cobalt and nitrogen co-doped carbon catalyst with atomically...

Unlocking the potential of the formate pathway in the photo-assisted Sabatier reaction

Nature Catalysis, Published online: 30 November 2020; doi:10.1038/s41929-020-00544-3Although the light-promoted Sabatier reaction has great potential for CO2 remediation strategies, its mechanism is not fully understood. Now, a steady-state isotopic kinetic analysis coupled with infrared spectroscopy reveals important aspects of this hydrogenation process...

Advances in supramolecular host-mediated reactivity

Nature Catalysis, Published online: 25 November 2020; doi:10.1038/s41929-020-00528-3Supramolecular hosts can readily self-assemble from simple components and allow remarkable chemical rate enhancements and product selectivity utilising defined microenvironments and specific host–guest interactions. This Review Article describes recent conceptual and...

Overall photocatalytic water splitting by an organolead iodide crystalline material

Nature Catalysis, Published online: 23 November 2020; doi:10.1038/s41929-020-00543-4Despite their promising optical properties, organolead halide perovskites are not frequently used in photocatalysis due to their low stability in water. Here, a long-lasting semiconductive organolead iodide layered crystalline material with the ability to perform overall...
