A mini-review on solid superbase catalysts developed in the past two decades
In this mini-review, we focus on the research activities on solid superbase catalysts that have been conducted in the past two decades. We summarize the type and preparation of superbases, the mechanism for the generation of basic sites, and the applications of superbases in catalysis. It is pointed out that several kinds of superbases are reported so far with the majority of solid superbases generated using a single metal oxide as support. However, the superbases are extremely sensitive to water and CO
