Application Note: SiliaCat® Pd0 and Pt0: A New Class of Silica-Based Heterogeneous Catalysts
21 May 2014

SiliaCat catalysts are innovative and unique heterogeneous catalysts made of a leach-proof organoceramic matrix. The latest addition to the SiliaCat product line is a new series of organosilica physically doped with nanostructured palladium(0) and platinum(0). Results for a number of fundamental organic transformations including C-C bond formation, selective debenzylation, hydrogenation and hydrosilylation are presented in this poster.
