The existing methods usually rely on a two-step process in which alcohols are first oxidized to aldehydes over metal catalysts (Ru, Pt, Pd) and then acetalized using acids. Hereby we report a Ru@MOF tandem catalyst containing ultra-fine Ru nanoparticles (< 2 nm) for direct alcohol to acetal conversion of monoalcohols and diols with no formation of carboxylic acids.

Herein, a calcium metalate catalyst CaCoOx nanoplates with oxygen vacancies was synthesized and used as an electrocatalyst for nitrogen reduction reaction (NRR) for the first time, whose morphology can be controlled by the calcination temperature and the heating rate. Under the optimal conditions, the CaCoOx catalyst achieved the yield of nitrogen conversion to ammonia of 16.25 μg·h−1·mgcat.−1 and showed good stability even after 12 times recyclability.

Efficient hydrogen isotope separation is achieved by using the dynamic low-temperature breakthrough device, in which a mixed gas of H2/D2/Ne (10/10/80, vol.%) flowed over the packed column of activated FJI-Y11 with a total flow of 10 mL/min at 77 K and 1 bar.

A novel bcu-type metal-organic framework (MOF) Zn9(tba)9(dabco)3 (H2tba = 4-(1H-tetrazol-5-yl)-benzoic acid; dabco = 1,4- diazabicyclo[2.2.2]octane) with triangular-like and quadrilateral-like channels was designed and assembled based on reticular chemistry strategy. Resulting from the synergetic contributory of sieving effect and diffusion, Zn9(tba)9(dabco)3 exhibits highly effective separation ability for hexane isomers.
