Organic Synthesis Mediated by Heterogeneous Catalysts

By V Kannan and K Dr. Sreekumar


Catalysis is a technologically important field which determines the quality of life in future. Catalyst research in pharmaceutical industry,fine chemical synthesis and emission control demands supported catalysts in bulk quantities.In the present work it was observed that clay supported catalysts mentioned in various chapters could also be used for the synthesis of similar molecules. The K10Ti catalyst can be used for the synthesis similar substituted imidazole derivatives under solvent free conditions and synthetically important Mannich bases of substrates containing various substitutes.Al-pillared saponite can be used for acetalation of other polyhydroxy compounds like glycerol,mannitol etc.Cu-Pd KSF catalyst has found application in C-C bond forming reactions which can be applied to other reactions and similar methods can be adopted for the synthesis of other catalyst by changing the transition metals. Montmorillonite K10 catalysed synthesis of triarylpyridines can be extended to the synthesis tetrasubstuted pyroles.K10Ti can also be utilized for the synthesis of similar heterocycles.Dept.of Applied Chemistry,Cochin University of Science and Technolog
