The hydrogenation of C2H2 in the presence and the absence of C2H4 has been studied over un-promoted and promoted Au/Al2O3. A number of parameters have been varied: the Au particle size, the pre-treatment conditions (hydrogen versus oxygen) and the nature of the promoters. Promoters include ceria, lithium and barium oxides. Our results show that hydrogenation of C2H2 proceeds with 100% selectivity towards C2H4, both in the presence and the absence of C2H4. Moreover, there is a strong dependence of the catalytic performance on the size of the Au particles: Au particles below 3 nm enhance the C2H2 conversion both in the absence and the presence of C2H4, without decreasing the selectivity to C2H4. Furthermore, metallic Au and Ce4+ appear to be more effective than Au3+ and Ce3+. Our findings also indicate that Li2O has a beneficial effect on C2H2 conversion, while BaO has a slight detrimental effect, both having no influence on the selectivity to C 2H4. The key to 100% selectivity to C2H 4 resides in non-competitive adsorption of C2H2 and C2H4 on the Au surface when both hydrocarbons are present in the feed. The deactivation during C2H2 hydrogenation is a reversible process and is due to accumulation of C deposits on the catalyst surface, as result of C2H2 adsorption on different active Au sites. These deposits can be easily burned off by a thermal treatment in oxygen. © 2010 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

Catalytic conversion of biomass is a key challenge that we chemists face in the twenty-first century. Worldwide, research is conducted into obtaining bulk chemicals, polymers and fuels. Our project centres on glucose valorisation via furfural derivatives using catalytic hydrogenation. We present here new results for a set of 48 bimetallic catalysts supported on silica, and demonstrate the application of data mining tools to identify major trends in the data. These results are combined with a full factorial data set for the hydrogenation of 5-ethoxymethylfurfural over alumina-supported transition metal catalysts. All the catalysts in the combined datasets were synthesized and tested for performance under identical conditions. This, combined with the fact that no combinations of metals were left out, enables the use of advanced data mining tools. The paper describes the data and highlights the relevant trends from a chemist's viewpoint. © The Author(s) 2010.

Isonicotinamide (INA) co-crystallizes with carbamazepine (CBZ), as do nicotinamide (NA) and benzamide. The structure of CBZ-INA form II is solved from powder and is shown to be isostructural with CBZ-NA. However picolinamide (PA), despite its similarity to the other pyridine carboxamides in the homologous series, does not appear to form a co-crystal with CBZ. We compare and contrast the use of computed crystal energy landscapes and binary and ternary phase diagrams to explain this behavior. Two 1:1 co-crystal structures of CBZ and INA were predicted to have lower or comparable lattice energies than the sum of the pure component lattice energies. These structures corresponded to the known co-crystal structures. On the other hand, lattice energies of predicted CBZ-PA co-crystal structures were less stable than the pure component lattice energies, implying that CBZ and PA would not form a co-crystal. This is consistent with the experimental evidence. Examination of the hypothetical crystal structures for CBZ-INA and for CBZ-PA explains this in terms of intermolecular hydrogen-bonding capability. Thus computed crystal energy landscapes are more reliable than simple crystal engineering concepts in understanding co-crystal formation, and can provide a useful complement to experimental co-crystal screening. © 2009 American Chemical Society.
