Abstract:


Cellulose sulfuric acid has proved its competence as a potential bio-compatible, non-toxic, and inexpensive heterogeneous solid acid catalyst in synthetic organic chemistry. Owing to its remarkable properties, such as non-hygroscopic nature, recyclability, superior catalytic activity and high stability, it has been actively explored as an efficient and biodegradable organocatalyst in diverse chemical transformations of synthetic relevance. This review attempts to summarize a significant advancement and catalytic applications of cellulose sulfuric acid for the synthesis of a plethora of biologically relevant organic molecules.

Keywords:

Biodegradable catalyst, cellulose sulfuric acid, heterogeneous solid acid catalyst, non-toxic, recyclability and synthesis.
