WO/2015/053715 METHOD FOR MAKING A HETEROGENEOUS CATALYST WITH IMMOBILIZED BORONIC ACID||WO||16.04.2015|
||PCT/SG2014/000478||AGENCY FOR SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY AND RESEARCH||GU, Liuqun|
The invention provides a method for preparing a catalyst for heterogeneous catalysis, comprising the immobilization of a boronic acid on an inorganic support. The inorganic support can be siliceous mesocellular foam where to the boronic acid is grafted. The method can comprise a pre-capping and post-capping step which introduces a fluorine rich micro environment and allows for an optimal load of immobilized boronic acid. The catalyst may be used for the direct amide condensation with improved reaction times. Yields of 80 % or higher have been obtained in the heterogeneous catalyzed reaction even for inactive carboxylic acids. The catalyst can be separated off and reused after the reaction for more than 5 times. The grafting of the boronic acid can be achieved by functionalizing of the surface of the support with alkyl amino groups followed by a coupling with a carboxy- phenyl boronic acid. The boronic acid shows no reduction in catalytic activity when being immobilized in this way. Moreover there can be a synergistic effect with the catalysis activities with the support.
