Temperature-programmed reduction (TPR) and temperature-programmed desorption (TPD) were used to study the effects of Cu and Ca promotion on Fe-Zn-based Fischer-Tropsch catalysts. The reduction temperature for Fe2O3 → Fe3O4 was unaffected by Ca addition but decreased when promoted with Cu. Fe-Zn promoted with Cu and Ca showed even much lower reduction temperature for Fe2O3→Fe3O4. Ca promotion enhances carburization and increases surface acidity and basicity of the Fe-Zn oxide precursor. While Cu inhibits carburization and decreases the surface acidity and basicity of the Fe-Zn oxide precursor. The implications of these effects on the application of catalysts for FT are discussed.

A coper(II) complex, [Cu(dpa)2(OAc)](ClO4) (1) [dpa =2, 2'-dipyridylamine; OAc = acetate], has been synthesized and crystallographically characterized. X-ray structure analysis revealed that this mononuclear Cu(II) complex crystallizes as a rare class of hexa coordination geometry named bicapped square pyramidalgeometry with P2₁/c space group. This copper complex displays excellent catalytic efficiency, kcat /KM (h⁻¹) = 6.17 × 10⁵ towards the oxidative coupling of 2-aminophenol (2-AP) to aminophenoxazin-3-one. Further, upon stoichiometric addition of copper(II) complex to 3,5-DTBC in presence of molecular oxygen in ethanol medium, the copper complex affords predominantly extradiol cleavage products along with a small amount of benzoquinone and a trace amount of intradiol cleavage products at a rate, kobs = 1.09 × 10⁻³ min ⁻¹, which provide substantial evidence for the oxygen activation mechanism. This paper presents a novel addition of a copper(II) complex having the potential to mimic the active site of phenoxazinone synthase and catechol dioxygenase enzymes with significant catalytic efficiency.

In this work, we have synthesised and structurally characterized a mononuclear cobalt(III) complex,[Co(2-O-pn)2] Cl 2H2O (1), (2-O-pn = 1,3-diamino-2-propanolate). From the X-ray structure of the cobalt complex, it is revealed that Co(III) ion in 1 adopts an octahedral geometry and crystallizes in the monoclinicsystem with C2/c space group. The lattice aqua molecule in combination with chloride ion in 1 forms a waterchloride cluster, (H2O)2 ··· (Cl)2 through strong H-bonding interaction mediated
