Pd(0) at Marshall University
Students in organic chemistry of Professor Kenneth
O'Connor at Marshall
University (Huntington, West Virginia) use SiliaCat Pd(0) to
learn green synthetic organic chemistry. Professors O'Connor will be
using new handout this coming
Spring to teach the lab to Marshall undergraduates in organic chemistry.
Student will carry out selective hydrogenation of unsaturated esters
under ultramild conditions. The method minimizes the E factor with
respect to green chemistry metrics and is taught as an eminent example
of new green chemistry process. The US team will later on report
achievements in Chemical Educator.
