Application

Effective catalyst for the tetrahydropyranylation of alcohols, using mild conditions and in high yields.
Copper(II) chloride may be used in the preparation of copper(II)-chitosan complexes with potential applications in biomedical devices as antibiotic-free antibacterial biomaterials due to their cytocompatibility and antibacterial property.
Used with palladium in a catalytic synthesis of 3-haloindoles via an annulation process.

Three-dimensional (3D) CuO/TiO2 hybrid heterostructure nanorod arrays (NRs) with noble-metal-free composition, fabricated by template-assisted low-cost processes, were used as the photo-Fenton-like catalyst for dye degradation. Here, CuO NRs were deposited into anodic aluminum oxide templates by electrodeposition method annealed at...

We produced and characterized copper(II)-chitosan complexes fabricated via in-situ precipitation as antibiotic-free antibacterial biomaterials. Copper was bound to chitosan from a dilute acetic acid solution of chitosan and copper(II) chloride exploiting the ability of the polysaccharide to chelate metal ions....
