Rising sun of the materials world: Tremendous efforts are being made to combine the potential of molecular catalysts with that of functional supports. An approach towards unifying homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysis is the entrapment of organometallic catalysts in a metal matrix, which leads to well-defined composites that are suitable as heterogeneous catalysts for hydrogenation of styrene and diphenylacetylene.
