Abstract

Nanostructured materials has appealed considerable attention due to their characteristic properties and applications in different fields. Metal nanoparticles supported on modified montmorillonite composites have led to the generation of new and novel heterogeneous ‘Nanocatalysts’, which are much more efficient than other catalysts and thus pave the way for developing sustainable environmentally benign catalysis and chemical procedures. Such nanocatalysts are progressing towards their use in chemical industries. This review presents the recent trend of advances in the synthesis and catalytic reactions of supported metal nanoparticles on acid activated montmorillonite. Metals nanoparticles-montmorillonite composites show efficient catalytic activities with high conversions and selectivity for hydrogenation, transfer hydrogenation, oxidations and coupling reactions. Raw montmorillonite possess no catalytic activity, however acid activated montmorillonite exhibits excellent acid catalytic activities.

Nanochemistry and Nanocatalysis Science: Research advances and future perspective

Bhupender S. Chhikara, Rajender S. Varma

The development of nanomaterials has made its mark in nanocatalytic applications and ensuing plethora of nanotechnological advances. The size-dependent chemistry of nanomaterials and consequent controlled and designed synthesis of smart materials with desired end application has provided us a number of new products recently which are already making impact on quality of human life. The fundamental nano paradigm shift would influence future research advances in field of nanoscience chemistry, ranging from drug delivery to exquisite designs of novel catalysts that drive innovations in chemical synthesis and transformations.  The nanoscience is an interdisciplinary field that will see increased role in the diverse and emerging newer areas like artificial intelligence; nanochemistry would help speed up the development of applications in the real world with artificial intelligence.
