Microgel Catalysts for Oxidation

Bioinspired- Se-driven Switchable Microgels Catalysts for Oxidation Processes

Catalysts play an important role in many reactions ranging from technical to biological. The working groups of Prof. Dr. Andrij Pich, Dr. Roman Nebesnyi, and Prof. Dr. Igor Potemkin develop a system mimicking an enzyme Glutathione Peroxidase by using selenium modified thermally-switchable poly(vinylcaprolactam) (PVCL) microgels. The microgels are expected to deliver high yield and selectivity in the oxidation reaction in organic solvents and at high temperature without denaturation on the enzyme.
