Title: Vanadium complexes immobilized on solid supports and their use as catalysts for oxidation and functionalization of alkanes and alkenes
Authors: Maurya, Mannar Ram

Published in: Coordination Chemistry Reviews
Abstract: This review mainly discusses the immobilization strategies that have been used for vanadium complexes, typically mesoporous material, zeolites and polymers, the characterization procedures for the obtained materials, and their catalytic applications. The retention of the active metal compound within the catalyst may be based on (i) adsorption, (ii) the formation of covalent bonds between metal ligand and support, (iii) ion exchange, (iv) encapsulation, or (v) entrapment. The heterogenized complexes are used as catalysts for oxidations and functionalization of alkanes, alkenes and other substrates, and an account of the various applications reported is given. © 2011 Elsevier B.V.
