Abstract

original image

Making a quick recovery: The widespread implementation of bromination reactions to manufacture value-added products is contingent upon the development of sustainable and cost-effective means to recycle copious amounts of HBr byproduct. We report families of heterogeneous catalysts for the full recovery of Br2 through HBr oxidation that display unprecedented low-temperature activity and stability.
