In this work, the protons of the Keggin heteropolyacids were exchanged by Lewis acid metal cations generating salts that were evaluated as catalysts on the β-pinene etherification with alkyl alcohols. The Fe(III) phosphotungstate salt (i.e. FePW12O40) was the most active and selective catalyst toward the formation of α-terpinyl methyl ether, the main reaction product. The activity of FePW12O40 catalyst was higher than their precursors of synthesis (i.e. H3PW12O40, Fe(NO3)3), other Fe(III…

Metal-exchanged phosphotungstate nanoparticles with improved acidity as the catalyst for esterification of glycerol with acetic acid
Abstract A series of metal-exchanged phosphotungstate salts, Fe-TPA, Cr-TPA, Cu-TPA, and Ni-TPA were synthesized by sonication and tested for glycerol esterification with acetic acid to obtain
Synthesis, structural, and optoelectronic properties of a new series of polyoxometalate salts: effect of cesium content
A novel series of cesium-modified POM (Cs-POMs) compounds (CsxH4−xPW11VO40, x = 0.5, 1.5, 2.5, 3.5 and 4) was synthesized by self-assembly method. The characterization techniques including scanning


Monoterpenes etherification reactions with alkyl alcohols over cesium partially exchanged Keggin heteropoly salts: effects of catalyst composition
In this work, cesium partially exchanged Keggin heteropolyacid (HPA) salts were prepared, characterized, and evaluated as solid catalysts in monoterpenes etherification reactions with alkyl alcohols.
Effects of Brønsted and Lewis acidities on activity and selectivity of heteropolyacid-based catalysts for hydrolysis of cellobiose and cellulose
Heteropolyacids (H3PW12O40, H4SiW12O40) and salts of metal cations (Mn+) and PW12O403− (M3/nPW12O40) act as effective homogeneous catalysts for selective hydrolysis of cellobiose and cellulose to
Fe(III)-catalyzed α-terpinyl derivatives synthesis from β-pinene via reactions with hydrogen peroxide in alcoholic solutions
In this study, a novel and environmentally benign Fe(III)-catalyzed terpinyl derivatives synthesis using hydrogen peroxide in alcohol solutions (i.e. methyl, ethyl, propyl, isopropyl and butyl
Exploring the Keggin-Type Heteropolyacid-Catalyzed Reaction Pathways of the β-Pinene with Alkyl Alcohols
In this work, we investigated the activity of Keggin heteropolyacid catalysts (i.e., H3PW12O40, H3PMo12O40 and H4SiW12O40) in β-pinene reactions with alkyl alcohols (i.e. methyl, ethyl, propyl,
Fe2(SO4)3-Catalyzed Levulinic Acid Esterification: Production of Fuel Bioadditives
In this work, we developed a route to synthesize fuel bioadditives based on simple and inexpensive commercial catalyst: iron(III) sulfate. This process is an alternative to the traditional Bronsted
Catalysis of vegetable oil transesterification by Sn(II)-exchanged Keggin heteropolyacids: bifunctional solid acid catalysts
Keggin heteropolyacid protons (i.e., H3PW12O40, H3PMo12O40, H4SiW12O40) were partially exchanged with Sn(II) cations generating solid acid catalysts that were used for vegetable oil
