Study Results from University of Kashan Update Understanding of Fullerenes

June 13, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Science Letter -- A new study on Fullerenes is now available. According to news reporting out of Kashan, Iran, by NewsRx editors, research stated, "The catalytic activity of titanium dioxide supported on carbon nanotubes has been investigated in a one-pot three components condensation reaction (Biginelli reaction)."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from the University of Kashan, "The TiO2-CNT nanocomposites as catalyst are highly stable and completely heterogeneous and they can be recycled several times."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "Compared to the classical Biginelli reaction conditions, the present methodology offers several advantages such as excellent yields, simplicity, fast and clean reactions and short reaction times."
