Abstract

A new ruthenium-grafted mesoporous organic polymer Ru-MPTAT-1 has been synthesized via simple and facile in situ radical polymerization of 2,4,6-triallyloxy-1,3,5-triazine (TAT) in aqueous medium in the presence of an anionic surfactant (sodium dodecyl sulfate) as a template, followed by grafting of Ru(II) onto its surface. Ru-MPTAT-1 has been characterized by elemental analysis, powder XRD, HRTEM, FT-IR, UV-vis DRS, TG-DTA, FESEM and XPS characterization tools. The Ru-MPTAT-1 material showed very good catalytic activity in the Suzuki–Miyaura cross-coupling reaction for aryl halides and transfer hydrogenation reaction for a series of carbonyl compounds. The catalyst is easily recoverable from the reaction mixture and can be reused several times without appreciable loss of catalytic activity in the above reactions. Highly dispersed and strongly bound Ru(II) sites at the mesoporous polymer surface could be responsible for the observed high activity of the Ru-MPTAT-1 catalyst in these reactions.
