Tuning Templated Microgel Catalysts for Selective Glycoside Hydrolysis
Glycoside, Hydrolysis, Binuclear copper(II) complex, Microgel, Template
Microgel catalysts with immobilized binuclear copper(II) complexes were prepared and explored for their ability to hydrolyze the glycosidic bond in model substrates. The reaction is up to 660,000-fold accelerated over the uncatalyzed background reaction in aqueous alkaline solution. A modest selectivity of the catalyst was also observed.
