LEE-BED / CPI

LEE-BED is a Horizon 2020 project that aims to reduce development time of materials and process for the production of hybrid electronics. CPI-Formulation’s focus is on ink, adhesive and composite formulation, while CPI-Electronics are optimising testing procedures for roll-2-roll printed components. DTI is working on scaling up the synthesis of a range of nanoparticles, including copper nanoparticles. Other partners include Fraunhofer, TNO, ITENE, RISE, VSParticles, TPU, Swarovski, Maier, Acceona and Graphetic.

MDPI – Catalysts

Despite their high atomic dispersion, single site catalysts with Pt supported on CeO2 were found to have a low activity during oxidation reactions. In this study, we report the behavior of Pt/CeO2 single site catalyst under more complex gas mixtures, including CO, C3H6 and CO/C3H6 oxidation in the absence or presence of water.

The Chemical Record

Asymmetric Pd-catalyzed Tsuji-Trost-type allylation is an important catalytic reaction toward chiral natural and unnatural product syntheses. We successfully modified a desalt-type reaction using allyl ester or halide to a dehydrative one using allylic alcohol via the establishment of two redox-mediated donor acceptor bifunctional catalyst systems.
