Supported catalysts are available on different supports such as polymer, charcoal, alumina, and silica.  Although they offer many advantages over the traditional homogeneous catalysts, including ease of handling and purification, silica presents many advantages over the other supports such as no swelling, solvent independency, mechanical and thermal stabilities, and ease of scalability.

SiliaCat® are innovative and unique heterogeneous catalysts made from a leach-proof organoceramic matrix. Applications below show how SiliaCat  can be used organic synthesis as catalyst species.
