Researchers from the School of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering at Shanxi University (SXU) recently published their research achievements inNature Communications, a peer-reviewed, open access and scientific multidisciplinary journal.

The research article, entitledDual metal nanoparticles within multicompartmentalized mesoporousorganosilicas for efficient sequential hydrogenation, was jointly written by primary author Zou Houbing from the school, and co-authors Yang Hengquan from the school and Wang Runwei from Jilin University.

According to the article, the research team developed an efficient dual metal cascade catalyst and proposed a new mechanism for neighboring metal-assisted hydrogenation by controlling the localization of multiple metal nanoparticles on a single support.

The research not only provides a new idea for designing efficient cascade catalysts, but has also puts forward a new understanding of the working mechanisms of cascade catalysts and a new perspective on the development of efficient cascade catalytic processes.
