Abstract: The use of heterogenization as a method for achieving
clean synthesis is discussed. The chemical modification of mesoporous
solids can be used to make a range of catalysts, including solid acids
and bases, and stable metal complexes for selective oxidations and other
reactions. By avoiding an aqueous quench stage in the separation, the
heterogenization of catalysts and reagents can lead to substantial reductions
in waste produced in organic chemical manufacturing processes.
