Activity of New Supported Catalysts in Olefin Hydrosilylation Reactions

Conference Paper


Supported catalysts are very important catalysts because they combine advantages of both homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysts together, by supporting the homogeneous catalysts onto insoluble supports. Such a technique would give a catalyst system that is highly active (as homogeneous system) and easy to recover (as heterogeneous system) [1]. This work describes how homogeneous catalysts, such as metalloporphyrins, can be intercalated into nano-scale clay particles such as Montomorillonite to produce a new type of supported catalyst system [2]. Routes to achieve metalloporphyrin intercalation between layers will be discussed. Figure (1) shows a schematic presentation of the intercalation process.
