Oxidized Single-Walled Carbon Nanotubes (SWCNs-COOH) as a New Catalyst for the Protection of Carbonyl Groups as Hydrazones

MK Borazjani, HR Safael, M Panahandeh, AR Klani, M Klani, M Mofarahi

Abstract


Nano-materials are considered as suitable heterogeneous catalysts for many organic reactions. Herein oxidized carbon nanotube (SWCNTs-COOH) has been reported as a heterogeneous catalyst, for protection of carbonyl groups as hydrazones in EtOH at 80 °C. The reactions proceed smoothly with good to excellent yields, and the SWCNTs-COOH used can be recycled.

KEYWORDS Carbon nanotubes, protection, catalyst, carbonyl group.
