Title : The decomposition reaction of hydrogen peroxide by the model catalysts


The catalytic hydrogenation of nitro compounds is one of the most important chemical reactions as the product amines are forceful intermediates for the synthesis of various natural and industrial products like agrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, dyes, and polymers.1 Through the Multi-Component Reactions (MCRs), which are an important method since carbon-carbon, carbon-nitrogen and carbon-oxygen bonds are created in a single stage,2 the facile mesoporous silica-supported silver and gold nanoparticles catalyzed chemoselective reduction of multifunctional nitro-compounds into the corresponding amines in high isolated yields, employing NaBH4 or Et3SiH as reducing agents,3 is reported. The present catalytic system represents an rattling approach towards the production of the heterocyclic bioactive compounds of dihydroquinoxalin-2-ones with high yields, via a catalytic two-step one-pot ring closing pathway based on the reported chemoselective reduction.


Dr. Iordanidou studied Chemistry at the Department of Chemistry, in Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece and graduated as MS in 2014. She then joined the research group of Prof. Ioannis N. Lykakis in the faculty of Organic Chemistry at the same department. She received her PhD degree in 2019. From September to December in 2016, she joined the research group of Prof. Jean- Luc Renaud in the laboratory of Organic and Thioorganic Molecucels in Ecole Nationale Supérieure d'Ingénieurs de Caen (ENSICAEN), in France. She has published 2 research articles in SCI(E) journals and another 5 are to be submitted.
