Supported gold nanoparticles as catalysts for organic reactions

Author affiliations

Abstract

This critical review is intended to attract the interest of organic chemists and researchers on green and sustainable chemistry on the catalytic activity of supported gold nanoparticles in organic transformations. In the general part of this critical review, emphasis is given to the different procedures to form supported gold nanoparticles and to the importance of the support cooperating in the catalysis. Also the convergence of homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysis in the study of gold nanoparticles has been discussed. The core part of this review is constituted by sections in which the reactions catalyzed by supported gold nanoparticles are described. Special emphasis is made on the unique ability of gold catalysts to promote additions to multiple C–C bonds, benzannulations and alcohol oxidation by oxygen (282 references).
