Efficient microwave-assisted synthesis of bisimides …

The research and application of green chemistry principles have led to the development of cleaner processes. In this sense, during the present century an ever-growing number of studies have been published describing the use of ionic liquids (ILs) as solvents, catalysts, or templates to develop more environmentally friendly and efficient chemical transformations for their use in both academia and industry. The conjugation of ILs and microwave irradiation as a non-conventional heating source has shown evident advantages when compared to conventional synthetic procedures for the generation of fast, efficient, and environmental friendly synthetic methodologies. This review focuses on the advances in the use of ILs in organic, polymers and materials syntheses under MW irradiation conditions.

“Microwave assisted synthesis of imides and bisimides”

Microwave dielectric heating proved to be an efficient method for the one-pot and stepwise syntheses of symmetrical and unsymmetrical naphthalenediimide derivatives of α-amino acids. Acid-labile side chain protecting groups are stable under the reaction conditions; protection of the α-carboxylic group is not required. The stepwise condensation of different amino acids resulted in high yields of unsymmetrical naphthalenediimides. The reaction proceeds without racemization and is essentially quantitative.

Zeolitic imidazolate frameworks (ZIFs), a subclass of metal-organic frameworks (MOFs), havebeen recently employed in various fields such as gas separation, catalysis, water purification anddrug delivery.1 Their high importance is due to their chemical and thermal stability in addition tothe flexibility of their design. ZIFs have been synthesized solvothermally or at room temperatureusing organic solvents (e.g. methanol, DMF) or pure water.2 The control of size and morphologyof crystals has been achieved using reverse microemulsion methods, microwave, ultrasoundassistedsyntheses and coordination modulation methods.1-3 Herein, we investigate a newsynthesis method where ZIF crystals are produced using the reaction-diffusion framework (RDF)in a gel medium at room temperature. The method is based on the diffusion of an outer solutionof the organic linker or mixed linkers into an agar gel containing the inner metal ions Zn(II)and/or Co(II) where a precipitation reaction takes place leading to the formation of the ZIFcrystals. A propagating supersaturation wave, initiated at the interface between the outer solutionand the gel matrix leads to a precipitation front endowed with a gradient of crystal sizes rangingbetween 100 nm and 55 μm along the same reaction tube. While the precipitation fronts of ZIF-8 and ZIF-67 travel the same distance for the same initial conditions, ZIF-8 crystals therein areconsistently smaller than the ZIF-67 crystals due to the disparity of their rate of nucleation andgrowth. The effects of temperature, the concentration of the reagents, and the thickness of thegel matrix on the growth of the ZIF crystals are investigated. We also show that by using RDF,we can envisage the formation mechanism of the ZIF crystals, which consists of the aggregationof ZIF nanospheres to form the ZIF-8 dodecahedrons. Moreover, using RDF the formation of asolid-solution ZIF via the incorporation of Co(II) and Zn(II) cations within the same frameworkis achieved in a controlled manner. Finally, we demonstrate that doping ZIF-8 by Co(II)enhances the photodegradation of methylene blue dye under visible light irradiation in theabsence of hydrogen peroxide.
