CuO/SiO2: a simple and efficient solid acid catalyst for epoxide ring opening

Author affiliations

Abstract

A cheap, non toxic, easy to prepare and easy to use supported CuO material has shown to be a very effective catalyst for the alcoholysis of epoxides giving β-alkoxyalcohols in very good yield without generating any waste. The catalyst is heterogeneous in nature and can be reused without any reactivation treatment.
