Bio-crosslinking of chitosan with oxidized starch, its functionalization with amino acid and magnetization: As a green magnetic support for silver immobilization and its catalytic activity investigation
Rafiee, F. | Rezaie Karder, F.
In this study, we have reported the synthesis and characterization of new magnetic bionanocatalyst based on chitosan and investigated their catalytic activity in the A3-coupling reaction. In order to increase the stability of chitosan, starch oxide biopolymer was used as a green covalent linking agent between chitosan chains. After the cross-linking of chitosan with starch oxide, aldehyde functional groups were reacted with amine groups of cysteine to form the corresponding Schiff bases in the hybrid biopolymer. Then, the imine bonds were reduced to prevent possible their hydrolysis. The magnetic support was resulted with addition of iron oxide nanoparticles. In the presence of thiol and carboxylate coordinated groups of amino acid, silver ions were immobilized on this biosupport.Show more [+] Less [-]
