Efficient Dehydrogenation of Formic Acid Using an Iron Catalyst
A highly active iron catalyst system for the liberation of H2 from FA is presented and in situ nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy, kinetic studies, and density functional theory calculations are used to explain possible reaction mechanisms.
Sustainable metal catalysis with iron: from rust to a rising star?
Low-temperature aqueous-phase methanol dehydrogenation to hydrogen and carbon dioxide
An efficient low-temperature aqueous-phase methanol dehydrogenation process, which is facilitated by ruthenium complexes is described, which would make the delivery of hydrogen on mobile devices—and hence the use of meethanol as a practical hydrogen carrier—feasible.

Catalysis : from principles to applications
Using carbon dioxide as a building block in organic synthesis.
A use of carbon dioxide as a renewable one-carbon (C1) building block in organic synthesis could contribute to a more sustainable use of resources.
Recent Applications of Palladium‐Catalyzed Coupling Reactions in the Pharmaceutical, Agrochemical, and Fine Chemical Industries
In this review different examples from 2001-2008 are highlighted, which have been performed at least on a kilogram scale in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries.
Nanoscale Fe2O3-Based Catalysts for Selective Hydrogenation of Nitroarenes to Anilines
Lighter Hydrogenation Catalysts Enzymes have evolved to use abundant metals such as iron, cobalt, and nickel for redox catalysis. However, synthetic catalysis has generally relied on the rarer,…
MOF-derived cobalt nanoparticles catalyze a general synthesis of amines
Cobalt nanoparticles encapsulated by a graphitic shell are broadly effective reductive amination catalysts, offering cost-effective access to numerous amines, amino acid derivatives, and more complex drug targets.
