What is it about?

An gold(I) complex was anchored onto carbon nanotubes and used as catalyst. It could be very efficiently resused several times with minimal loss of activity.

Why is it important?

In comparison with our work published in Chemistry-A European Journal (Vriamont et al.), it shows that covalently anchored complex is more robust towards recycling than the same complex immobilized by pi-pi stacking (non covalent).


A nice piece of work to read in conjunction with other papers by same group of authors ! (Vriamont et al.) All part of his splendid PhD thesis ! (proud supervisor speaking here)
