The team have developed a stable, water reducing catalyst which operates under acidic conditions and indicates poly-pyridyl ligand frameworks are superior to some of the other commonly used chelators. They also show the cobalt complex retains catalytic activity when resin bound, meaning it is active as both a homogeneous and heterogeneous catalyst. For full details download the article below.
