Nano reactions


Recently, nanoporous materials have emerged as important and efficient heterogeneous catalysts for the organic transformations owing to their excellent textural characteristics including high surface area, large pore volume, and uniform pore size distribution, and its simplicity in workup and recyclability. The pore diameters are chosen to control the access of molecules to the catalytic reaction sites located inside the porous cavities. Only the molecules of certain sizes and chemical properties are selected and guided to the reaction centers where they are efficiently transformed to the desired products.
