The quest for sustainable processes is becoming more and more important, with catalysis playing a major role in improving atom economy and reducing waste. Organic syntheses with less need of protecting/de-protecting steps are highly desirable. The combination of microwave irradiation, as energy source, with ionic liquids, as both solvents and catalysts, offered interesting solutions in recent years. The literature data of the last 15 years concerning selected reactions are presented, highlighting the importance of microwave (MW) technology coupled with ionic liquids.

Abstract Metal catalyzed reactions are a powerful tool to design new chemical synthetic processes according to Green Chemistry principles, such as pollution prevention, atom economy, catalysis and the use of safer solvents and chemicals. The selection of the metal is particularly important to plan relevant and applicable processes: in particular, Vanadium is a good choice because it is cheap, naturally abundant and relatively non-toxic. Moreover, its rich redox chemistry makes it a suitable cata...

ABSTRACTThe removal of sulfur compounds from transportation fuel is an important aspect for protecting environment and for fuel cell applications. On the other hand, an innovative way to remove the sulfur is necessary because clean low-sulfur diesel is more widely used in the world today. In this work, we studied the effect of microwave irradiation power and time on the extractive catalytic oxidative desulfurization (ECODS) process of diesel fuel model (40 mL with initial S-content of 450 ppm), ...

Excessive CO2 emissions in the atmosphere from anthropogenic activity can be divided into point sources and diffuse sources. The capture of CO2 from flue gases of large industrial installations and its conversion into fuels and chemicals with fast catalytic processes seems technically possible. Some emerging technologies are already being demonstrated on an industrial scale. Others are still being tested on a laboratory or pilot scale. These emerging chemical technologies can be implemented in a...

For the first time, microwave (MW) irradiation was successfully applied to peroxidative cyclohexane oxidation catalyzed by a C-scorpionate complex, [FeCl2(Tpm)] (1; Tpm = hydrotris(pyrazol-1-yl)methane), providing a highly selective and fast eco-friendly procedure to produce a KA (cyclohexanol + cyclohexanone) oil mixture (up to ca. 100% selectivity) with 28% yield in 1 h at 50 °C in MeCN. Water, organics, and ionic liquids (ILs, [bmim][N(CN)2] and [bmim][BF4]) were used as solvents, and their i...

This article first discloses that the fluorine anion-containing ionic liquids-functionalized biochar sulfonic acids (BCSA-IL-F1–3s), which were simply synthesized by an ionic exchange of 1-trimethoxysilylpropyl-3-methylimidazolium chloride (IL-Cl) grafted on the BCSA with CF3SO3H (HF1), HBF4 (HF2), HPF6 (HF3), respectively, can efficiently catalyze cellulose hydrolysis into reducing sugars (RSs) and 5-hydroxymethyl furfural (HMF) in water under microwave irradiation. This process provides a very...

Abstract An efficient, eco-friendly and sustainable method for the tandem oxidative amidation of alcohols with amines has been reported. Using heteropolyanion-based ionic liquids as the catalyst and tert -butyl hydroperoxide as the oxidant, this amidation reaction is operationally straightforward and provides a series of primary, secondary and tertiary amides derivatives in moderate to good yields. Solvent-free media, microwave-promoted conditions and reusability of catalysts are the main highli...

A sustainable procedure for the synthesis of N-heteroaryl amides directly from oxidative amidation of aldehydes catalyzed by heteropolyanion-based ionic liquids under microwave-promoted conditions has been reported. The transformation has proven to tolerate a wide range of aldehydes and amino heterocycles with different functional groups. Moderate to excellent yields, solvent-free media, operational simplicity and reusability of catalysts are the main highlights. Furthermore, the proposed N-dire...

A C60-ionic liquid hybrid has been covalently linked to three different solid supports, namely amorphous silica, SBA-15 and Fe2O3@SiO2, and the resulting materials have been employed as covalently supported ionic liquid phases (cSILP) in order to immobilize and stabilize palladium nanoparticles (PdNPs). These novel hybrid materials are based on a sort of “matryoshka” system (PdNPs@imidazolium-salt@C60@support) in which the imidazolium-based moieties have not been directly linked to the surface o...

Abstract This article documented synthesis of a Schiff base, E-2-(benzylthio)- N -{(2-methoxynaphthalene-1-yl)methylene}benzenamine (HL) by the treatment of 2-meyhoxynaphthaldehyde and 2-(benzylthio)aniline. Reaction of this synthesized Schiff base with Na 2 PdCl 4 has been investigated, which gave a novel six membered Pd(II) complex (PdLCl) through C,N,S-donor atom of Schiff base. These two newly synthesized compounds were characterized by 1 H NMR, FTIR and UV–Vis spectra and structure of the P...

Thanks to the well-recognized role of benzaldehyde in industry, nowadays the research of new and sustainable approaches to selectively synthesize such an interesting product is receiving great attention from the chemists’ community. In this paper, a V-based catalytic biphasic system is adopted to perform toluene oxidation to benzaldehyde. Importantly, to pursue sustainability, organic solvents have been avoided, so toluene is used as substrate and co-solvent, together with water. Also, the use o...

The ever-growing interest in the cross-coupling reaction and its applications has increased exponentially in the last decade, owing to its efficiency and effectiveness. Transition metal-mediated cross-couplings reactions, such as Suzuki–Miyaura, Sonogashira, Heck, and others, are powerful tools for carbon–carbon bond formations and have become truly fundamental routes in catalysis, among other fields. Various greener strategies have emerged in recent years, given the widespread popularity of the...

: Microwave irradiation has been used for accelerating organic reactions as a heating method and has been proven to be useful in laboratory scale organic synthesis. The major drawback of microwave chemistry is the difficulty in scaling up, mainly because of the low penetration depth of microwaves. The combination of microwave chemistry and flow chemistry is considered to overcome the problem in scaling up of microwave-assisted organic reactions, and some flow microwave systems have been develope...

Abstract Fuel desulfurization is an appealing topic for the chemical industry since severe environmental regulations regarding SO2 emissions have been legislated in many countries. In order to reduce the amount of sulfur-containing compounds in fuels, responsible for high SOx emission levels, a green chemistry approach is compulsory. In this paper, vanadium salen and salophen complexes were used in the oxidation of a model aromatic sulfide, such as dibenzothiophene (DBT), in the presence of H2O2...
