Mesoporous Carbon-Supported Pd Nanoparticles in the Metallic State-Catalyzed Acylation of Amides with Aryl Esters via C-O Activation

ACS Omega. 2022 Apr 7;7(15):12779-12786. doi: 10.1021/acsomega.1c07342. eCollection 2022 Apr 19.


Carbon, an abundant, inexpensive, and nonmetallic material, is an inimitable support in heterogeneous catalysis, and variable carbonaceous materials have been utilized to support metal nanoparticle catalysts. We developed an efficient and stable heterogeneous catalyst with highly dispersed metallic palladium nanoparticles embedded in an ordered pore channel of mesoporous carbon and first applied the catalyst to construct imides from amides using aryl esters as an acylation reagent via C-O activation. The catalyst represents excellent catalytic performance and could be reused and recycled five times without any significant decrease in activity. The heterogeneous nature of metallic state palladium was proven to be the active center in the acylation reaction.
