Promoted Iron Nanocrystals Obtained via Ligand Exchange as Active and Selective Catalysts for Synthesis Gas Conversion.
Colloidal synthesis routes have been recently used to fabricate heterogeneous catalysts with more controllable and homogeneous properties. Herein a method was developed to modify the surface composition of colloidal nanocrystal catalysts and to purpo

Design of a metal-promoted oxide catalyst for the selective synthesis of butadiene from ethanol.
The synthesis of buta-1,3-diene from ethanol has been studied over metal-containing (M=Ag, Cu, Ni) oxide catalysts (MO(x)=MgO, ZrO2, Nb2O5, TiO2, Al2O3) supported on silica. Kinetic study of a wide range of ethanol conversions (2-90%) allowed the mai

Design and synthesis of potent, selective inhibitors of matriptase.
Matriptase is a member of the type II transmembrane serine protease family. Several studies have reported deregulated matriptase expression in several types of epithelial cancers, suggesting that matriptase constitutes a potential target for cancer t

CaO as drop-in colloidal catalysts for the synthesis of higher polyglycerols.
Glycerol is an attractive renewable building block for the synthesis of polyglycerols, which find application in the cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries. The selective etherification of glycerol to higher oligomers was studied in the presence of C

Design and synthesis of potent, selective phenylimidazole-based FVIIa inhibitors.
Heterocyclic amide isosteres were incorporated into a phenylglycine-based tissue factor/factor VIIa (TF-FVIIa) inhibitor chemotype, providing potent inhibitors. An X-ray co-crystal structure of phenylimidazole 19 suggested that an imidazole nitrogen

Nanoscale intimacy in bifunctional catalysts for selective conversion of hydrocarbons.
The ability to control nanoscale features precisely is increasingly being exploited to develop and improve monofunctional catalysts. Striking effects might also be expected in the case of bifunctional catalysts, which are important in the hydrocracki

Mesoporous bubble-like manganese silicate as a versatile platform for design and synthesis of nanostructured catalysts.
Manganese silicate in bubble-like morphology was used as a versatile platform to prepare a new class of yolk-shell hybrids. The mesoporosity of the shell was generated from the interbubble space and the bubble structure of manganese silica was used t

Strategies for the Synthesis of Higher Acenes.
The outstanding performance of pentacene-based molecules in molecular electronics, as well as the predicted enhanced semiconducting properties of extended acenes, have stimulated the development of new synthetic methods and functionalization strategi

Iron-based catalysts for the hydrogenation of esters to alcohols.
Hydrogenation of esters is vital to the chemical industry for the production of alcohols, especially fatty alcohols that find broad applications in consumer products. Current technologies for ester hydrogenation rely on either heterogeneous catalysts

One-step synthesis of bismuth molybdate catalysts via flame spray pyrolysis for the selective oxidation of propylene to acrolein.
Flame spray pyrolysis (FSP) of Bi(III)- and Mo(VI)-2-ethylhexanoate dissolved in xylene resulted in various nanocrystalline bismuth molybdate phases depending on the Bi/Mo ratio. Besides α-Bi2Mo3O12 and γ-Bi2MoO6, FSP gave direct access to the metast
