Presentation Abstract

This past 2018 summer, we initiated a new area of research called fruit puree catalysis. Our working hypothesis is that un-isolated enzymes found in whole fruits can be utilized as catalysts for organic reactions. So far, we have had vary degrees of success with a variety of fruits that indicates this is a practical, viable and potentially cost-savings organic synthetic method. We are exploring application in one class of reactions but will soon expand to other reaction types, other fruits/seeds and greener reaction conditions.
