    • Abstract


      Trichloroisocyanouric acid (TCCA)-functionalized mesoporous silica nanocomposites (SBA/TCCA) were synthesized and characterized for the acylation of indole. The uniform incorporation of TCCA inside the SBA-15 matrix was confirmed by standard characterization techniques (PXRD, Adsorption studies, FT-IR, etc.). The catalytic activity studies of SBA/TCCA nanocomposites for acylation of indole showed high selectivity (60–90%) of the 3-acetyl indole compared to homogeneous TCCA (50%). The advantage of solid support for higher selectivity is also explained.
