NaY zeolite: A useful catalyst for nitrile hydrolysis
Article (Published version)
MetadataShow full item record
The NaY zeolite catalysed hydrolysis of nitriles to primary amides is reported. It is found that aryl nitriles with strong electron-withdrawing substituents and cyanopyridines are readily hydrolysed in the water suspension, while aliphatic nitriles do not react.
