Selected publications 2011

Angewandte Chemie 

The research of Pawel Dydio, a trainee research assistant in the Homogeneous and Supramolecular Catalysis group made it to the back cover of Angewandte Chemie. The publication is also one of Angewandte's hot papers.

  • Dydio, P., Dzik, W. I., Lutz, M., de Bruin, B. and Reek, J. N. H. (2011), Remote Supramolecular Control of Catalyst Selectivity in the Hydroformylation of Alkenes, in Angewandte Chemie International Edition, 50, 396-400 DOI: 10.1002/anie.201005173

Jos Oomens, who is professor at the Molecular Photonics group but also heads a research group at the FOM Institute for Plasma Physics Rijnhuizen, published an article in Angewandte Chemie on the structure and stability of the naphtyl carbocation.

Raveendran Shiju and Gadi Rothenberg (Heterogeneous Catalysis and Sustainable Chemistry group) synthesized a robust solid catalyst that combines two antagonistic functions (acid and base) to catalyse one-pot tandem reactions. Their results were published in Angewandte Chemie.

  • N. Raveendran Shiju, Albert H. Alberts, Syed Khalid, David R. Brown, and Gadi Rothenberg, Mesoporous Silica with Site-Isolated Amine and Phosphotungstic Acid Groups: A Solid Catalyst with Tunable Antagonistic Functions for One-Pot Tandem Reactions, Angewandte Chemie International Edition 2011. DOI: 10.1002/anie.201101449

Journal of the American Chemical Society

The Homogeneous and Supramolecular Catalysis group took a major step forward in the search for selective catalysts for the fine chemicals industry. The synthesis of a rhodium biphosphine complex with a carboxylate binding site was published in the Journal of the American Chemical Society.

  • Paweł Dydio, Christophe Rubay, Tendai Gadzikwa, Martin Lutz, and Joost N. H. Reek, “Cofactor”-Controlled Enantioselective Catalysis, Journal of the American Chemical Society 2011 133 (43), 17176-17179, DOI:10.1021/ja208589c

Physical Review Letters

Ana Célia Vila Verde and Peter Bolhuis (Computational Chemistry) contributed to a study published in Physical Review Letters which shows that molecules at the surface of a water mass rotate far faster than the water molecules within it.

  • Cho-Shuen Hsieh, R. Kramer Campen, Ana Celia Vila Verde, Peter Bolhuis, Han-Kwang Nienhuys, Mischa Bonn, Ultrafast reorientation of dangling OH groups at the air-water interface using femtosecond vibrational spectroscopy Physical Review Letters, 2011, Vol. 107. DOI:10.1103/PhysRevLett.107.116102
