Cover Picture Palladium Oxidase Catalysis Selective Oxidation of Organic Chemicals by Direct Dioxygen-Coupled Turnover (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 262004)код для вставкиСкачать
Cover Picture Shannon S. Stahl* Environmentally friendly chemistry is often inspired by nature itself. This principle is portrayed in the cover picture depicting recent advances in the palladium-catalyzed selective oxidation of organic molecules with molecular oxygen. In the Review on pp. 3400 ff., S. S. Stahl outlines the mechanistic principles and diversity of applications of “Palladium Oxidase Catalysis”. These catalytic reactions are reminiscent of enzymatic oxidases in which independent dioxygen reduction and substrate oxidation steps are coupled in a sequential, two-stage mechanism.
