Development of Fluorous Lewis Acid-Catalyzed ReactionsAuthor(s): Emily Sin
Green Sustainable Chemistry (GSC) is a major objective for chemical companies in the twenty-first century, and we can assume that GSC will become a big goal for chemical companies in the future. The major goal of synthetic organic chemistry is to produce waste-free and ecologically friendly commercial processes that use Lewis acids such as aluminium choride. A primary technological goal of our work in this subject has been the creation of a "catalyst recycling system that exploits the high activity and structural features of fluorous Lewis acid catalysts." As a result, we've developed a new class of fluorous Lewis acid catalysts, such as bis (perfluoroalkanesulfonyl) amides or tris (perfluoroalkanesulfonyl) methides of ytterbium (III), scandium (III), tin(IV), or hafnium (IV). In supercritical carbon dioxide, in a Fluorous Biphasic System (FBS).
