Supramolecular chemistry of substituted cucurbit[: N] urils (2020)
Journal Article
Lin, R. L., Liu, J. X., Chen, K., & Redshaw, C. (2020). Supramolecular chemistry of substituted cucurbit[: N] urils. Inorganic Chemistry Frontiers, 7(17), 3217-3246. https://doi.org/10.1039/d0qi00529k

Since the first example of substituted cucurbit[n]urils (Q[n]), decamethylcucurbit[5]uril (Me10Q[5]), was reported in 1992, numerous substituted Q[n]s have been synthesized and studied. In this review article, we focus on the recognition properties o... Read More about Supramolecular chemistry of substituted cucurbit[: N] urils.

The role of heterogeneous catalysts in the plasma-catalytic ammonia synthesis (2020)
Journal Article
Patil, B. S., Patil, B. S., Cherkasov, N., Srinath, N. V., Lang, J., Ibhadon, A. O., …Hessel, V. (in press). The role of heterogeneous catalysts in the plasma-catalytic ammonia synthesis. Catalysis Today, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.cattod.2020.06.074

Ammonia, being the second largest produced industrial chemical, is used as a raw material for many chemicals. Besides, there is a growing interest in the applications of ammonia as electrical energy storage chemical, as fuel, and in selective catalyt...

Synthesis of Biodegradable Polymers: A Review on the Use of Schiff-Base Metal Complexes as Catalysts for the Ring Opening Polymerization (ROP) of Cyclic Esters (2020)
Journal Article
Santoro, O., Zhang, X., & Redshaw, C. (2020). Synthesis of Biodegradable Polymers: A Review on the Use of Schiff-Base Metal Complexes as Catalysts for the Ring Opening Polymerization (ROP) of Cyclic Esters. Catalysts, 10(7), 1-49. https://doi.org/10.3390/catal10070800

This review describes the recent advances (from 2008 onwards) in the use of Schiff-base metal complexes as catalysts for the ring opening polymerization (ROP) of cyclic esters. The synthesis and structure of the metal complexes, as well as all aspect...
