After reviewing selected recent applications from diverse laboratories, we show how mesoporous organosilica-entrapped catalysts of the SiliaCat series have been successfully used for clean manufacturing of APIs in a number of different reactions carried out under laminar flow in microreactors. The advantages and disadvantages linked to these catalysts in terms of technical and economical sustainability are highlighted. Insight into the scale-up of this technique and related catalytic technologies from the lab scale to industrial production concludes the study. © The Royal Society of Chemistry 2016.

Organically modified silica-based SiliaCat S-Pd and SiliaCat DPP-Pd are highly reactive and reusable heterogeneous catalysts. Their robustness, high turnover and leach-resistant properties are shown in palladium-catalyzed reaction such as Suzuki, Sonogashira and Heck leading to metal-free coupling products. © Springer Science+Business Media, LLC 2010.

A number of new, heterogeneously catalyzed processes to selectively oxidize alcohols into carbonyl or carboxyl compounds have been introduced in the past decade. This study summarizes selected methods suitable for scale-up and convenient adoption by fine chemical and pharmaceutical industries to replace conventional oxidative routes based on homogeneous catalysis or on stoichiometric oxidation with inorganic and organic oxidants. © 2015 American Chemical Society.
