Abstract

Heterogeneous single site catalysts in many cases show superior performances in terms of activity, selectivity and reciclability coupling together the advantages of heterogeneous and homogeneous systems [1]. Cu(I) complexes (see fig. 1), based on functionalised pyridine-containing macrocyclic chiral ligands [2] were heterogeneized on mesoporous ordered and non-ordered silicas (Davisil, MCM-41, etc.) by the SHB method [3] and they were successfully applied to asymmetric cyclopropanation reactions. Materials obtained were fully characterized for metal content, textural properties, hydrogen bonds between Cu complex and surface silanols by a pool of techniques. Catalysts were tested in asymmetric cyclopropanation of olefins employing ethyldiazoacetate (EDA) as carbene precursor and in the Henry or nitro-aldol reaction and they show performances at least comparable to those obtained with the homogeneous counterpart. Tests using both basic and ordered silicas with the aim of exploiting the confinement effect on stereoselectivity are currently in progress. References [1] V. Dal Santo, F. Liguori, C.
