New Findings Reported from Northwestern Polytechnic University Describe Advances in Applied Catalysis Research

June 13, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Science Letter -- A new study on Applied Catalysis Research is now available. According to news originating from Xi'an, People's Republic of China, by NewsRx correspondents, research stated, "Superparamagnetic polymer composite microspheres Fe3O4/P(GMA-AA-MMA) prepared by an emulsifier free emulsion polymerization using DPE as free radical control agent were used to support palladium nanoparticles."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from Northwestern Polytechnic University, "The magnetic catalyst can provide excellent reactivity in the Suzuki coupling reactions of aryl halides with phenylboronic acids under mild condition (at 80 C) in EtOH/H2O (1:1) mixture."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "Furthermore, the novel catalyst can be conveniently recovered by an external magnet field and reused at least five times without significant loss of its catalytic activity."
