Linear scaling relationships and volcano plots have served as powerful tools for catalyst design and screening in heterogeneous catalysis. Recently, this approach has been introduced in homogeneous catalysis. Seminal reports found that the complicated thermodynamic and kinetic energy profiles of homogeneous catalysis can be successfully described by using very limited energetic descriptors based on linear scaling relationships. This is demonstrated in a number of important catalytic transformations including C-C cross-coupling, N2 reduction, CO2 hydrogenation and alkene hydroformylation. This Frontier highlights the noteworthy impact of scaling relationships and volcano plots on the understanding and design of homogeneous catalysis and discusses the perspectives on the future development of this area.

This is a multi-center, randomized study to compare blood and urine cobalt, chromium, and titanium ion levels of a metal-on-metal articular bearing coupled with two different head sizes to...
The aim of this study is to demonstrate the non-inferiority of the ceramic-on-metal articulation using large diameter bearings (38mm to 60mm) compared to the metal on metal articulation us...
It is widely acknowledged that the transition from paediatric to adult health services should be a multidimensional and multidisciplinary process that addresses the medical, psychosocial, ...
A clinical Evaluation to determine metal ion release from 4th generation metal-on-metal hip articulating surfaces in cementless total hip arthroplasty.
Supramolecular networks that consist of ordered arrangements of organic electron donor linkers (usually ditopic or polytopic organic carboxylates) and metal cations. They can have an extremely high surface area and adjustable pore size that allows for the insertion of other molecules capable of various functions such as catalysis, capture of carbon dioxide, and drug delivery.
The reaction of two molecular entities via oxidation usually catalyzed by a transition metal compound and involving dioxygen as the oxidant.
Cultivation of PLANTS; (FRUIT; VEGETABLES; MEDICINAL HERBS) on small plots of ground or in containers.
Phenotypic changes of EPITHELIAL CELLS to MESENCHYME type, which increase cell mobility critical in many developmental processes such as NEURAL TUBE development. NEOPLASM METASTASIS and DISEASE PROGRESSION may also induce this transition.
Designation for several severe forms of ichthyosis, present at birth, that are characterized by hyperkeratotic scaling. Infants may be born encased in a collodion membrane which begins shedding within 24 hours. This is followed in about two weeks by persistent generalized scaling. The forms include bullous (HYPERKERATOSIS, EPIDERMOLYTIC), non-bullous (ICHTHYOSIS, LAMELLAR), wet type, and dry type.
