Role of mixed metal oxides in catalysis science—versatile applications in organic synthesis

Author affiliations

Abstract

A variety of mixed metal oxides (MMOs), containing alkali, alkaline, rare earth and noble metals, and their applications are presented. In this mini review, we summarize versatile applications of mixed metal oxides in organic synthesis. A variety of reactions such as reduction, oxidation, multicomponent, Mannich, alkylation, condensation, deprotection, cycloaddition, hydroxylation, dehydration, dehydrogenation, transesterification, reactions involving biomimetic oxygen-evolving catalysts and other important C–C bond forming reactions are well presented on the surface of mixed metal oxides under a variety of reaction conditions. The scope of MMOs in important organic reactions, industrial applications, and green chemistry and recent applications of MMOs are well presented in this review.
