Unravelling the secrets of Cu-based catalysts for C-H activation

Project description

Cross-fertilisation is sowing the seeds for a new era of catalysts

Synthetic chemistry is critical to fields from biomedicine to industrial chemistry. In multiple reaction steps, new compounds can be formed through functionalisation of existing ones. Catalytic functionalisation of carbon-hydrogen (C-H) bonds is an intense area of research. The range of substrates is virtually limitless, including hydrocarbons, complex organic compounds, and synthetic and biological polymers. C-H functionalisation based on this unlimited repertoire of starting points is believed to have the potential to revolutionise the synthesis of complex molecules. The persistent challenge is the amazing stability of the C-H bond. The EU-funded CUBE project is pulling together insights from numerous fields regarding pioneering copper-containing biological and synthetic catalysts. This cross-fertilisation is expected to lead to exotic fruit with unprecedented catalytic benefits.
