Nano-catalysts with Magnetic Core: Sustainable Options for Greener Synthesis

Citation:

Varma, R. Nano-catalysts with Magnetic Core: Sustainable Options for Greener Synthesis. Sustainable Chemical Processes. Chemistry Central, London, Uk, 2(11):1-8, (2014).

Description:

Author’s perspective on nano-catalysts with magnetic core is summarized with recent work from his laboratory. Magnetically recyclable nano-catalysts and their use in benign media is an ideal blend for the development of sustainable methodologies in organic synthesis. Water or polyethylene glycol (PEG) provides good medium to perform such chemical reactions with magnetic nano-catalysts, as this combination adds superb value to the overall sustainable process development. In this mini-review, the uses of magnetically recyclable nano-catalysts for a variety of organic reactions are described in conjunction with activation via microwave irradiation.

Purpose/Objective:

Submitted to open an access journal, Sustainable Chemical Processes, A Chemistry Central Publication.
