Metalloporphyrin catalyzed oxidation and hydrogenation of carbon-carbon single bond with water

Professor Kin Shing Chan from the Department of Chemistry. The Chinese University of Hong Kong will present the Department of Chemistry Seminar, with a talk entitled, "Metalloporphyrin catalyzed oxidation and hydrogenation of carbon-carbon single bond with water"

Abstract: Water both as an oxygenating and transfer hydrogenating agents are utilized in the catalytic cleavage of aliphatic carbon-carbon single bond by metalloporphyrins. Thus, the coupling of two very challenging chemical reactions - water splitting and carbon-carbon bond activation have been realised. These reactions bear the potentials for energy harvesting and storage.
