Nanofibrous and nanotubular materials, natural and synthetic, are important alternative matrices for the immobilization of metallocomplexes, especially metalloporphyrins, as oxidation catalysts. The process permits a regular and controllable distribution of the active phase at the outer and/or inner surfaces of the tubes, promoting a special environment for the approximation of a substrate to the catalytic active species. The immobilization also prevents the molecular aggregation and… CONTINUE READING
