What is it about?

The efficient multicomponent synthesis of 3,4-dihydropyrimidin-2(1H)-ones promoted by a heterogeneous Cu/silica xerogel composite is presented herein. This composite was synthesized by the sol-gel methodology employing CuCl2 as the metal source. The catalyst can be easily recovered and reused in subsequent reactions.

Why is it important?

Metal/Silica Nanocomposites are a recoverable heterogeneous catalyst able to promote several types of reactions catalyzed br Lewis acids such as Cu. After promote the reaction, it can be separated by a simole filtration, dried and reused several times.


The sol gel methodology serves to anchor different metals in its structure making the metal recoverable and contributing to good environmental conservation practices.
