Abstract

We newly synthesized well-crystallized hydrotalcite-supported copper nanoparticles, denoted as Cu/HT(c), which acted as a highly efficient heterogeneous catalyst for oxidant-free lactonization of various diols under liquid-phase conditions. The Cu/HT(c) catalyst could be recovered by simple filtration and reused without the significant loss of its activity and selectivity.
