Prof. Philippe MIELE (IEMM) and Dr. Umit B. DEMIRCI (IEMM), in collaboration with Dr. François GARIN (University of Strasbourg) have co-edited, as Guest Editors, a special issue (Year 2011, Volume 170), entitled “catalysis in hydrolysis of sodium borohydride and ammonia borane, and electrocatalysis in oxidation of sodium borohydride”, in Catalysis Today:

The idea of this Special Issue was born out of fruitful seminars and discussions in 2010 with several colleagues expert in catalysis, who pertinently remarked that many of the papers about [the] reactions [hydrolysis of sodium borohydride and ammoniaborane, thermolysis of ammoniaborane and derivatives, and electrooxidation of sodium borohydride and ammoniaborane] are published in journals which aims and scopes are not primarily catalysis. This Special Issue is thus an opportunity to gives the (electro-)catalysis community an overview of the fundamental and technical problems that hinder the development of efficient, selective, durable catalysts” (from Catal. Today 170 (2011) 1-2), which are used to dehydrogenate these boron-based chemical hydrogen storage materials. “We hope that this Special Issue will open a wider discussion that might be helpful for all in better understanding the catalyst role and the reaction mechanisms, in improving the catalyst durability and selectivity, and in generating new ideas for the elaboration of supported catalysts with prospects of scale-up” (from Catal. Today 170 (2011) 1-2).
