Description

Application

Nitromethane may be employed in the preparation of cobalt cage complexes.

General description

Nitromethane is an aliphatic nitro compound. It undergoes Michael addition reaction with chalcones in the presence of cinchona alkaloid-derived chiral bifunctional thiourea organocatalyst. Its conversion to N2 in the presence of Co-ZSM5 (Zeolite Socony Mobil-5) has been studied.
