Design of High-Performance Heterogeneous Metal Catalysts for Green and Sustainable Chemistry
This account reviews a novel approach to designing high-performance heterogeneous metal catalysts using hydroxyapatites, montmorillonites, and hydrotalcites as macroligands of active metal species for aerobic alcohol oxidations, carbon–carbon bond formations, and one-pot syntheses. The catalytic systems using the above heterogeneous catalysts offer significant benefits in achieving environmentally friendly organic syntheses aiming towards Green and Sustainable Chemistry. Furthermore, the present preparation method for the immobilization of metal species is strikingly simple and allows a strong protocol for creating various nanostructured and functionalized heterogeneous catalysts.
