Dispersion of graphene sheets in ionic liquid 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium hexafluorophosphate was successfully achieved with the aid of a polymerized ionic liquid (PIL).
The shape of Pd nanocrystals (NCs) can be controlled by combination of oleylamine (OAm) and alkylammonium alkylcarbamate (AAAC), and Pd spheres, tetrahedra and multipods have been synthesized. The multipods and tetrahedra are much more active than the spheres for hydrogenation reactions.
A novel Cu and boron doped graphitic carbon nitride catalyst (Cu-CNB) was synthesized using cheap precursors and systematically characterized. The selective oxidation of toluene proceeded very smoothly over the catalyst at 70 °C using tert-butyl hydroperoxide (TBHP) as the oxidant to exclusively afford benzaldehyde. The catalyst can be used for at least… (More)
