Graphical Abstract:


Furan and its derivatives find wide-spread application as pharmaceuticals, pigments, dyes, brighteners, flavour & fragrance compounds and insecticides. They also exhibit antihyperglycemic, analgesic, anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-tumour activities. Silver catalysts are nowadays commonly used in organic synthesis due to the high oxidation potential and versatile nature of silver complexes. In this review, we summarise the recent advances in the synthesis and applications of furan moiety using silver catalysis and covers literature from 2015-2020.

Keywords: Silver, furan, catalysis, synthesis, silver catalysis, homogeneous catalysis.
