Title

Imidazolium-Based Polymer Supported Gadolinium Triflate as a Heterogeneous Recyclable Lewis Acid Catalyst for Michael Additions

Abstract

A heterogeneous Lewis acid catalytic system has been developed by incorporating gadolinium triflate on to poly[styrene-co-(1-((4-vinylphenyl)methyl)-3-methylimidazolium) tetrafluoroborate] (1-Gd(OTf)3), and the catalytic activity of this system has been examined for Michael additions of amines and thiols to α,ß-unsaturated esters and acrylonitrile. The reactions proceed in moderate to excellent yields in the presence of catalytic system 1-Gd(OTf)3. The catalytic system could be efficiently recycled and reused.
