Since the idea of a sustainable chemistry became an urgency for the scientific community, an exponential increasing in the use of heterogeneous recoverable catalysts was registered. Mesoporous silica (MCM) have played a prominent role as inert supporting materials in this field, because of their high specific surface areas, their large pore size and their thermal and chemical stability. The efficiency of non toxic Er(III) salts as Lewis acid catalysts in homogeneous phase was largely explored by our group. This work is focused on the realization and application of a new class of heterogeneous catalysts based on the Er(III) chemistry. The MW-assisted synthesis and characterization, the rationalization of the MW–effect on the system, the application of a new MCM-Er(III) catalyst under non-conventional synthetic methods as US, MW and continuous-flow conditions will be presented.
