Green chemistry and the ocean-based biorefinery

Competition for land use could be minimized if marine sourced feedstocks were used for chemicals and materials production rather than crops grown on fertile land.

Direct aerobic oxidation of 2-benzylpyridines in a gas–liquid continuous-flow regime using propylene carbonate as a solvent

The use of continuous flow technology enables a fast and efficient oxidation of 2-benzylpyridines in propylene carbonate using compressed air as an oxidant.

Ruthenium(II)-catalyzed selective monoarylation in water and sequential functionalisations of C–H bonds

The selective monoarylation of arene C–H bonds, with arylchlorides and heteroarylhalides, is efficiently performed using a RuCl2(PPh3)(p-cymene) catalyst operating in water and it is followed by a different (hetero)arylation with a Ru(OAc)2(p-cymene) catalyst in water to produce mixed bifunctional derivatives.

Cycloaddition of CO2 to epoxides catalyzed by imidazolium-based polymeric ionic liquids

A cross-linked ionic polymer derived from a styrene-functionalized imidazolium ionic liquid displays high efficiency and reusability as a heterogeneous catalyst for the cycloaddition of CO2 to epoxides.

Recycling Pd colloidal catalysts using polymeric phosphine ligands and polyethylene as a solvent

Polyisobutylene (PIB)-bound azo dyes were prepared from aryl amine terminated polyisobutylene oligomers and used to form palladacycle precatalysts that can be used for catalytic carbon–carbon cross coupling reactions.

Facile insertion of CO2 into metal–phenoxide bonds

The insertion of CO2 into cobalt– and zinc–phenoxide bonds was found to occur rapidly suggesting it to be a facile key-step in the copolymerisation of carbon dioxide with epoxides.

Production of polyetheretherketone in ionic liquid media

Polyetheretherketones were synthesised in the ionic liquid 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium bis{(trifluoromethyl)sulfonyl}amide and recovered with high separation efficiency.

A clean enzymatic process for producing flavour esters by direct esterification in switchable ionic liquid/solid phases

By using an iterative cooling/centrifugation protocol, a clean biocatalytic approach for producing flavour esters in switchable ionic liquid/solid phases has been developed.
