Recoverable Nanoparticles for Green Catalysis
Green chemistry can be defined as the science dealing with making chemistry sustainable. Our research focuses on synthesizing, characterizing and studying novel, and simple catalysts, based on metal nanoparticles, ionic liquids and/or cellulose nanocrystals in order to propose innovative and recyclable catalysts for organic reactions
