The project aims toimmobilize the complex [RuCl2 (PPh3) 3] in the array of carbon nanotube (CNT), ín a way that it is employed in reactions of ROMP (ring opening metathesis polymerization). The reactions will be tested with norbornene and norbornadiene in solutions of CHCl3 at room temperature and 50 ° C, on time intervals from 5 to 60 min and compared with systems in homogeneous phase. The initiator [RuCl2(PPh3)3] willl be fixed by the substituted ligand piperidine (HOCH2-piperidine) that will be covalently linked to CNT derived by organic chain previously synthesized.Thus, this project is part of the development of heterogenized initiators in order to allow the reuse of catalysts, within the boundaries of technology transfer. The recovery of the catalyst will be tested using a pulsed methodology with chain transfer agent (CTA) cis-stilbene, ROMP-CTA-ROMP-CTA ... etc.. At each cycle ROMP-CTA , the polymer is decanted, and then a new cycle can be started. Within this development, will be checked the effectiveness of the immobilized initiator in order to improve problems with interaction substrate/iniciator within the solution, considering that this is a polymerization reaction. Problems of deactivation, leaching and diffusion will be observed, so they can be minimized by using a pulsed-ROMP appropriate CTA.
