2015-063 – Synthesis and Application of Chiral Polyvinylpyrrolidones

A researcher at Kansas State University has demonstrated the synthesis of chiral polyvinylpyrrolidones (PVPs) using various commercially-available natural and unnatural amino acids. The synthesis method can be used to generate a variety of chiral PVPs for various applications, and can also be applied for the catalytic chiral oxidation of alkenes in the presence of catalytic amounts of palladium-gold bimetallic nanoclusters. Further, the resultant chiral PVPs have demonstrated their uses in asymmetric oxidation of 1,3-diol and C-H oxidation of cycloalkanes mediated by palladium-gold nanoclusters.
