Catalysis Science & Technology in C&EN

A Graham Hutchings paper in Catalysis Science & Technology has been highlighted by C&EN, in their Science & Technology Concentrates.

You can find their news story midway down the Science & Technology section, entitled ‘Gold catalyzes Esterifications’:

The article is about Professor Hutchings work on ‘Oxidative esterification of 1,2-propanediol using gold and gold-palladium supported nanoparticles‘. In the paper they use gold and gold palladium nanoparticles to make methyl lactate (used in cosmetics) and methyl pyruvate (used to treat diseases of the nervous system).
