Analysis of Updated Literature Data up to 2019 on the Oxidative Coupling of Methane Using an Extrapolative Machine‐Learning Method to Identify Novel Catalysts

Machine learning: An updated dataset of the catalytic oxidative coupling of methane (OCM) consisting of nearly 5000 experimental datapoints has been compiled and analyzed using statistical methods based on machine learning (ML). A new explorative ML approach that considers elemental features as input representations (named as Sorted Weighted Elemental...

Highly Selective Carbon‐Supported Boron for Oxidative Dehydrogenation of Propane

Surface species: Oxidized activated carbon-supported boron (B/OAC) exhibits higher performance for the oxidative dehydrogenation (ODH) of propane as compared to benchmark hexagonal boron nitride. XPS, IR, Raman and solid-state NMR spectroscopies revealed the presence of clustered oxidized/hydrolyzed boron on the surface of the support. The high performance...

Preparation of One‐Pot Immobilized Lipase with Fe3O4 Nanoparticles Into Metal‐Organic Framework For Enantioselective Hydrolysis of (R,S)‐Naproxen Methyl Ester

MOF biocatalysis: Magnetic Calix@ZIF-8 biocomposites were prepared by a simple method and were utilized as a support for the immobilization of Candida rugosa lipase. Immobilized enzymes were also used enantioselective hydrolysis reactions of (R,S)-naproxen methyl ester. This work may also be useful for the pharmaceutical industry due to the increased...

Recent Advances in Aerobic Photo‐Oxidation of Methanol to Valuable Chemicals

Photocatalysis: The utilization of TiO2 NPs as a photocatalytic experiment has been developed to convert organic molecules. Yet, the role of excited excitons, and surface adsorbates in the photochemistry of TiO2 are understated. The main pathway of this photo-oxidation occurs via chemisorption of methanol as methoxy species, then formates. These formed...

Corrigendum: High Ethylene‐Yield Oxidative Dehydrogenation of Ethane Using Sulfur Vapor as a “Soft” Oxidant

In Situ Hybridizing Cu3(BTC)2 and Titania to Attain a High‐Performance Copper Catalyst: Dual‐Functional Role of Metal‐Support Interaction on the Activity and Selectivity

Cu catalyzed hydrogenation: An in situ hybridization of metal organic framework Cu3(BTC)2 and titania route is constructed to acquire a highly dispersed and robust CuO#TiO2 catalyst, which enables a superior high activity (∼20.8 molFUR/molCu h) with sound furfural alcohol yield (>99 %) toward furfural hydrogenation. Abstract Production of...

Expedient Hydrofunctionalisation of Carbonyls and Imines Initiated by Phosphacyclohexadienyl Anions

Anion catalysis: Hydrofunctionalisations of various substrates, including, imines, esters and CO2 are effectively initiated by lithium phosphacyclohexadienyl compounds. High selectivities and excellent TOFs were found, rivalling those of previously reported organic and alkoxide anions. Abstract The ability of phosphacyclohexadienyl anions [Li(1-R-PC5Ph3H2)]...

Selective Oxidation of Methane to Methanol over Ceria‐Zirconia Supported Mono and Bimetallic Transition Metal Oxide Catalysts

Methanol Production: Lewis acidic transition metal oxide clusters supported by redox active ceria-zirconia are capable of catalyzing the selective oxidation of methane to methanol. The Lewis acidity of the metal oxide clusters controls the formation of the methoxy species, which are the key intermediate for methanol production. Abstract Several...

Improving Catalytic Activity and Reversing Enantio‐Specificity of ω‐Transaminase by Semi‐Rational Engineering en Route to Chiral Bulky β‐Amino Esters

Asymmetric synthesis: A (S)-selective ω-transaminase from the Burkholderia vietnamiensis G4 was engineered for the asymmetric synthesis of bulky β-amino esters, meanwhile, a substrate-dependent shift in enantio-preference was observed towards β-keto esters with linear and branched aliphatic substituents. Abstract The application of wild-type...

Amino Assisted Protonation for Carbon‐Carbon Coupling during Electroreduction of Carbon Dioxide to Ethylene on Copper(I) Oxide

Electroreduction of CO2 : The amino group is modified on the copper electrode with the cuprous oxide deposition layer by electrodeposition, and then the CO2 is electrocatalytically reduced to ethylene on the surface, which promotes the efficient recycling of carbon resources in the ecosystem. Amino assisted protonation for carbon-carbon coupling during...
