Abstract

Organic¿inorganic hybrid materials with different levels of structuration and porous hierarchy and one or several types of active sites in the framework can catalyze multistep chemical processes in a one-pot reactor system following a cascade of reaction events. It will show how the different active sites can act in a synergistic or in a consecutive way following a similar functionality model to biological multisite catalysts. Research on this subject for heterogeneous catalysts is still in the beginning stage and very interesting results can be expected if we are able to successfully combine the properties of organic and inorganic catalysts.
