Synthesize metal complexes in an innovative way, it’s possible !

par corneille - publié le

Access to organometallic compounds or coordination complexes may be essential during a multi-step synthesis (organomagnesium, lithium...), during the synthesis of a catalyst (palladium, ruthenium complexes...) or simply to obtain a complex with therapeutic properties (cisplatin...).

The Green Chemistry and Enabling Technologies team of the IBMM has published in the journal Chemical Reviews a review entitled « Alternative Technologies That Facilitate Access to Discrete Metal Complexes » showing that the synthesis of metal complexes can be performed using innovative technologies such as microwaves, ultrasound, photochemistry, flow chemistry and mechanochemistry. Classical solution chemistry, beware !
