Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


A new type of bispyridine (bpy) incorporated POP was prepared via a cobalt-catalyzed acetylene trimerization. Subsequent immobilization of CuCl2 gave POP-Cu(ii). This new heterogeneous catalyst displayed outstanding olefin oxidation activity compared to its homogeneous analogue, suggesting that the degradation of the homogeneous catalyst was successfully inhibited by site isolation.
