Date of Issue2014
School of Physical and Mathematical Sciences
The primary focus of this research work has been made to design, synthesis and characterize novel periodic mesoporous organosilicas (PMOs) in order to utilize them as heterogeneous catalysts to perform various organic transformation with academic as well as industrial importance. With the help of these novel PMO based catalysts many existing disadvantages have been circumvented making the catalysis more environmentally benign and economically feasible. A variety of techniques of both materials and chemical science are used to fully characterize these PMOs as well as to monitor the catalysis.
