BORAZJANI, Maryam Kiani et al. Oxidized Single-Walled Carbon Nanotubes (SWCNs-COOH) as a New Catalyst for the Protection of Carbonyl Groups as Hydrazones. S.Afr.j.chem. (Online) [online]. 2013, vol.66, pp.279-281. ISSN 1996-840X.
Nano-materials are considered as suitable heterogeneous catalysts for many organic reactions. Herein oxidized carbon nanotube (SWCNTs-COOH) has been reported as a heterogeneous catalyst, for protection of carbonyl groups as hydrazones in EtOH at 80 °C. The reactions proceed smoothly with good to excellent yields, and the SWCNTs-COOH used can be recycled.
