  1. Preparation of new dioxygen-active triphenylantimony(V) catecholate-containing porous polymer

    New monolith porous polymers with a pore surface functionalized by hydroxyethyl groups were prepared, and the pore surface further functionalized by o-benzoquinone and triphenylantimony(V) catecholate groups. The resulting porous polymer containing antimony(V) catecholate moieties on the pore surface is able to bind molecular oxygen in a reversible manner. The sorption rate of atmospheric oxygen by antimony complexes grafted to the polymer surface is comparable with that of dioxygen binding by antimony catecholate in toluene solution.

  2. Terephthalic acid derived ligand-stabilized palladium nanocomposite catalyst for Heck coupling reaction: without surface-modified heterogeneous catalyst

    We combined heterogeneity and stabilizing power of a terephthalic acid-derived polydentate ligand in one process. This polydentate ligand is successfully used as a capping agent to stabilize palladium atoms at a very good nano-size ranging from 5 to 7 nm. This palladium nanocomposite is used as a heterogeneous catalyst for Mizoroki–Heck reaction giving high yield and purity, with good catalyst recovery without loss of activity.

  3. Triphenylphosphinopalladium(II) complexes with ONO-donor ligands: syntheses, structures and catalytic applications in C[BOND]C cross-coupling reactions

    Syntheses, X-ray structures and spectroscopic characteristics of three new palladium(II) complexes of general formula [Pd(Ln)(PPh3)] (H2Ln = 1-((2-hydroxy-5-R-phenylimino)methyl)naphthalen-2-ols) are reported. All three complexes act as effective catalysts in one-pot C[BOND]C cross-coupling reactions of arylboronic acids with aryl halides to form diaryl ketones.
