Recent Findings from National University Has Provided New Information about Organic Research (One-Step Synthesis of Xanthones Catalyzed by a Highly Efficient Copper-Based Magnetically Recoverable Nanocatalyst)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Life Science Weekly -- A new study on Life Science Research is now available. According to news reporting originating in Bahia Blanca, Argentina, by NewsRx journalists, research stated, "A versatile and highly efficient strategy to construct a xanthone skeleton via a ligand-free intermolecular catalytic coupling of 2-substituted benzaldehydes and a wide range of phenols has been developed."

The news reporters obtained a quote from the research from National University, "For this purpose, a novel and magnetically recoverable catalyst consisting of copper nanoparticles on nanosized silica coated maghemite is presented. The reaction proceeds smoothly with easy recovery and reuse of the catalyst."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "The methodology is compatible with various functional groups and provides an attractive protocol for the generation of a small library of xanthones in very good yield."
