The molecular design of active sites in nanoporous materials for sustainable catalysis

The molecular design of active sites in nanoporous materials for sustainable catalysis
The molecular design of active sites in nanoporous materials for sustainable catalysis
At the forefront of global development, the chemical industry is being confronted by a growing demand for products and services, but also the need to provide these in a manner that is sustainable in the long-term. In facing this challenge, the industry is being revolutionised by advances in catalysis that allow chemical transformations to be performed in a more efficient and economical manner. To this end, molecular design, facilitated by detailed theoretical and empirical studies, has played a pivotal role in creating highly-active and selective heterogeneous catalysts. In this review, the industrially-relevant Beckmann rearrangement is presented as an exemplar of how judicious characterisation and ab initio experiments can be used to understand and optimise nanoporous materials for sustainable catalysis.

Abstract

At the forefront of global development, the chemical industry is being confronted by a growing demand for products and services, but also the need to provide these in a manner that is sustainable in the long-term. In facing this challenge, the industry is being revolutionised by advances in catalysis that allow chemical transformations to be performed in a more efficient and economical manner. To this end, molecular design, facilitated by detailed theoretical and empirical studies, has played a pivotal role in creating highly-active and selective heterogeneous catalysts. In this review, the industrially-relevant Beckmann rearrangement is presented as an exemplar of how judicious characterisation and ab initio experiments can be used to understand and optimise nanoporous materials for sustainable catalysis.
