Advanced analytical techniques revealed that Pd-NPs are supported on the external surface of the polymer framework and the functionalized framework possesses effective influence to prevent Pd-NP aggregation. Supported Pd-NPs were effectively applied as heterogeneous recyclable catalysts in the Mizoroki–Heck C–C cross coupling reactions of iodobenzene and either aromatic or aliphatic terminal alkenes. Catalytic results exhibited that highly dispersed Pd-NPs with low loading (1%) on the functional polymer (Pd/CoBDCNH2) are more effective than aggregated Pd-NPs...

    In this thesis, heterogeneous magnetic catalysts immobilize have been designed and synthesized in a triazine polymer support. Triazine polymeric support increases the amount of nitrogen due to their high levels of nitrogen, which in turn reduces the amount of catalyst consumed and reduces metal waste and increases catalyst activate. Melamine and TCT from the triazine family are used because of the ability to form hydrogen bonds, chelate with metals, and the interaction of π-π as an appropriate ligand for stabilizing metals on substrates. In this thesis, various nitrogen-rich polymers based on triazines in the presence of magnetic nanoparticles coated with silica and their compositions with...

    Silica gel-confined ionic liquid (IL) is a class of heterogeneous catalysts with broad catalytic applications. Leaching of the IL from the surface of the support is the major drawback of these catalysts, which reduce the catalyst efficiency during the chemical reactions. To investigate the effect of the hydrogen bonding on the leaching phenomena, the interaction between the 1-ethyl-3-methylimidazolium-based IL with various anions (Cl-, Br-, HSO4 -, NO3 -, BF 4 -, and PF6 -) and the surface of the silica gel were studied using density functional theory. Hence, a hydroxylated cage-like cluster of silica gel, Si4O6(OH), was selected to mimic the surface. The values of ÎEinteraction show that...
