||PCT/CA2014/050280||GOUSSEV, Dmitri||GOUSSEV, Dmitri|
The present application discloses novel PWNN and PWNWP metal catalysts for organic chemical syntheses including hydrogenation (reduction) of unsaturated compounds or dehydrogenation of substrates. The range of hydrogenation substrate compounds includes esters, lactones, enals, enones, enolates, oils and fats, resulting in alcohols, enols, diols, and triols as reaction products. The catalysts of current application can be used to catalyze a hydrogenation reaction under solvent free conditions. The present catalysts also allow the hydrogenation to proceed without added base, and it can be used in place of the conventional reduction methods employing hydrides of the main-group elements. Furthermore, the catalysts of the present application can catalyze a dehydrogenation reaction under homogenous and/or acceptorless conditions. As such, the catalysts provided herein can be useful in substantially reducing cost and improving the environmental profile of manufacturing processes for a variety of chemicals.

||PCT/US2014/012905||CHEVRON U.S.A. INC.||REYNOLDS, Bruce Edward|
A process for the production of a H2S-enriched H2 gas stream without the need for H2S compression is disclosed. A slip stream of rich amine from a hydroprocessing unit is reduced in pressure and stripped with a hydrogen-containing gas. The H2S content of the resulting gas stream can be readily controlled by adjusting the stripping pressure and/or hydrogen rate. The H2S-enriched H2 gas stream is suitable for the sulfidation of catalytically active metals.

||PCT/US2013/029486||INTELLIGENT ENERGY, INC.||BARTON, Russell H.|
Disclosed are a hydrogen generator
and a method of producing hydrogen
gas therefrom. A fuel unit containing a fuel that releases hydrogen gas when heated is removably disposed in a cavity within a housing having a door. A heater assembly for heating the fuel unit is disposed in the hydrogen generator
. A mechanism retracts the heater assembly from the fuel unit when the door is opened and extends the heater assembly to contact the fuel unit when the door is closed. When the heater assembly is retracted, more space is available into which the fuel unit can be inserted to prevent damage to the heater assembly and the fuel unit, and when the heater assembly is extended, good contact is provided between the heater assembly and the fuel unit for efficient heating. A cam bar can move the heater assembly normal to the lateral motion of the cam bar.

||PCT/CH2013/000034||GRANIT S.A.||GAN, Weijia|
The present invention concerns a method for producing hydrogen
gas from formic acid, characterized in that at least one heterogeneous catalyst is used to transform formic acid to hydrogen gas; in which said at least one heterogeneous catalyst contains heterogenised ruthenium. In a first aspect of the invention, said at least one heterogeneous catalyst contains at least one hydrophilic phosphine ligand being m-TPPTS (meta-trisulfonated triphenylphosphine). The said at least one heterogeneous catalyst is preferably obtained by mixing an aqueous solution of RuCl3 with hydrophilic phosphine, firstly activated by carrying out a homogeneous reaction with formic acid and by adding at least one solid structure.
