Metal-Organic Chemistry, Applied Chemistry & Physics
Metal trifluoromethanesulfonate catalysts, or metal triflates, show advantages in their strong Lewis acidity and their increased tolerance for protic solvents and water, which can result in by-products of the chemical reaction of interest. In addition, metal triflates are generally considered to be environmentally friendly catalysts. This mini-review will present some examples of the applications of various metal triflates in synthetic organic chemistry. Click here for product information on metal triflates.
