Applied Catalysis A: Editor
Advances in the past decade to synthesize macromolecules and modify structures at the atomic scale have enabled construction of catalytic materials of designed structures. Some of them are illustrated by examples here. In the first system, siloxane nanocages are shown to exhibit confinement effects by strongly modifying the protonation affinity of internal amine groups, by changing the activity and product selectivity in a reaction catalyzed by these groups, and by stabilizing transition metal complexes of uncommon oxidation states. Another example is the construction of tetrahedrally coordinated Sn oxo unit on a support, which develops Br?nsted acidity upon quantitative adsorption of isopropanol, in addition to the expected Lewis acidity.
