In this study, a novel periodic mesoporous organosilica (PMO) containing diamide–diacid bridges was conveniently prepared using ethylenediaminetetraacetic dianhydride to support Cu(ii) species and affording Cu@EDTAD-PMO nanoparticles efficiently.

The synthesis of two biocatalysts based on a commercial Candida antarctica lipase B, CALB enzyme (E), physically immobilized on two silica supports, was carried out. The first support was a periodic mesoporous organosilica (PMO) and the second one was a commercial silica modified with octyl groups (octyl-MS3030). The maximum enzyme load was 122 mg enzyme/g support on PMO and 288 mg enzyme/g support on octyl-MS3030. In addition, the biocatalytic efficiency was corroborated by two reaction tests based on the hydrolysis of p-nitrophenylacetate (p-NPA) and tributyrin (TB). The transesterification of sunflower oil with ethanol was carried out over the biocatalysts synthesized at the following reaction conditions: 6 mL sunflower oil, 1.75 mL EtOH, 30 °C, 25 μL NaOH 10 N and 300 rpm, attaining conversion values over 80% after 3 h of reaction time. According to the results obtained, we can confirm that these biocatalytic systems are viable candidates to develop, optimize and improve a new methodology to achieve the integration of glycerol in different monoacylglycerol molecules together with fatty acid ethyl esters (FAEE) molecules to obtain Ecodiesel.

Abstract ZnO nanoparticles embedded on the surface of magnetic isocyanurate-based periodic mesoporous organosilica (Fe3O4@PMO-ICS–ZnO) was prepared through modified environmental-benign procedure for the first time and was properly characterized by appropriate spectroscopic and analytical methods or techniques used for mesoporous materials. The new thermally stable Fe3O4@PMO-ICS–ZnO materials with proper active sites, uniform particle size and surface area were investigated for the synthesis of medicinally important tetrazole derivatives through cascade condensation and concerted reactions as a representative of the Click Chemistry concept. The desired 5-substituted-1H-tetrazole derivatives were smoothly prepared in high to quantitative yields and good purity under green conditions. Low catalyst loading, very short reaction time and the use of green solvents such as EtOH and water instead of carcinogenic DMF as well as the possibility of easy separation and recyclability of the catalyst for at least five consecutive runs without significant loss of its activity are notable advantages of this new protocols compared to other recent introduced procedures.
