Hot Article: Intercalation catalysts

Shogo Shimazu and colleagues from Chiba University in Japan have made a novel anionic D-valine–Pd(II) complex, which they then intercalated into a NiZn interlayer as an active species for aerobic alcohol oxidation. To create a more efficient heterogeneous catalyst, the team added a Brønsted basic PO43- anion into the NiZn interlayer along with the anionic D-valine–Pd(II) complex. Find how how effecient the resulting catalyst is by reading Shimazu’s recently published Hot Article – free to access until the 16th September.
