Catalytic Parachute Small organic molecules have emerged as catalysts as versatile as transition metal complexes. However, industrial application of such organocatalysts has been hampered by technical challenges. Now Lee et al. (p. 1225) have succeeded in tethering a diverse set of high-performance organocatalysts to nylon fabric through ultraviolet photochemistry, making them easy to isolate and reuse. Metal-free molecular catalysts can be tethered to nylon to render them recoverable and… Expand
Parts-per-million level loading organocatalysed enantioselective silylation of alcohols
A remarkable contribution in this context was reported, where the simple loading of a simple 1,1′-bi-2-naphthol-based organocatalyst was enough to achieve highly enantioselective silylation reactions of alcohols. Expand
Organocatalysts for enantioselective synthesis of fine chemicals: definitions, trends and developments
Abstract Organocatalysis, that is the use of small organic molecules to catalyze organic transformations, has been included among the most successful concepts in asymmetric catalysis, and it has beenExpand
Proton sponge functionalized polyacrylonitrile fibers as an efficient and recyclable superbasic catalyst for Knoevenagel condensation in Water
Abstract Fiber catalysts with high catalytic activity and good recyclability have attracted much attention. In this work, proton sponge 1,8-bis(dimethylamino)naphthalene functionalizedExpand
Membrane-Grafted Asymmetric Organocatalyst for an Integrated Synthesis–Separation Platform
In this work we introduce a sustainable membrane-based synthesis–separation platform for enantioselective organocatalysis. An azido derivatized cinchona-squaramide bifunctional catalyst wasExpand
Polymer-supported Lewis acids and bases: Synthesis and applications
Abstract In the past decade the synthesis of novel stimuli-responsive materials has been driven by the pursuit of new applications and, more recently, sustainable and reusable systems. Of theseExpand
Ionic microenvironment constructed in quaternary ammonium modified polyacrylonitrile fiber for efficient CO2 fixation
Abstract Fiber-supported quaternary ammonium catalysts for the fixation of CO2 with epoxides were designed and prepared via amination and quaternization of polyacrylonitrile fiber, followed by ionExpand
A sustainable strategy for production and functionalization of nanocelluloses
Abstract A sustainable strategy for the neat production and surface functionalization of nanocellulose from wood pulp is disclosed. It is based on the combination of organocatalysis and clickExpand
Palladium Nanoparticle-Loaded Cellulose Paper: A Highly Efficient, Robust, and Recyclable Self-Assembled Composite Catalytic System.
A novel strategy based on the immobilization of palladium nanoparticles on filter paper for development of a catalytic system with high efficiency and recyclability and is expected to open doors for new types of catalytic support for practical applications. Expand
Immobilization of copper(II) into polyacrylonitrile fiber toward efficient and recyclable catalyst in Chan-Lam coupling reactions
Abstract A series of polyacrylonitrile fiber (PANF)-supported copper(II) catalysts were prepared through the immobilization of Cu(II) into prolinamide-modified PANF (PANPA-2F) and subsequently usedExpand
Asymmetric organocatalysis: an enabling technology for medicinal chemistry.
This review provides a comprehensive overview of the applications of asymmetric organocatalytic asymmetric synthesis of medicinally valuable compounds in medicinal chemistry, with a focus on the preparation of antiviral, anticancer, neuroprotective, cardiovascular, antibacterial, and antiparasitic agents.

References and Notes
our experimentation could eventually be used to discredit our findings, should they happen not to agree with the original observations. It seems important that all experiments in the rapidlyExpand
