- RGO/ZnO nanocomposite: An efficient sustainable heterogeneous amphiphilic catalyst for the synthesis of 3-substituted indoles in water. UC Rajesh, J Wang, SW Prescott, T Tsuzuki and D Rawat. ACS Sustainable Chem. Eng., 3(1), 9–18, 2015.
A nanocomposite consisting of reduced graphene oxide and zinc oxide nanoparticles (RGO/ZnO) with unique structural features was developed as an efficient sustainable amphiphilic heterogeneous catalyst for the synthesis of various 3-substituted indoles in water. The catalyst was recycled six times without significant loss of the catalytic activity. The higher environmental compatibility and sustainability factors such as smaller E-factor and higher atom economy make the present methodology a true green process for the synthesis of various biologically important 3-substituted indoles.
