We report here on the preparation of an efficient, easily recoverable and reusable Fe3O4 magnetic nanoparticle-supported Cu(II)-β-cyclodextrin complex catalyst for the synthesis of symmetrical biaryls and 1,2,3-triazoles from arylboronic acids. The presented Fe3O4 magnetic nanoparticle-supported Cu(II)-β-cyclodextrin complex catalyst was characterized by TEM, XRD, VSM, TGA, and FT-IR spectrometer. By using the catalyst, we have developed an efficient protocol for the homocoupling of aryl boronic acids for the synthesis of biaryls. The catalyst is also active in the synthesis of 1,2,3-triazoles via a one-pot reaction of an arylboronic acid with sodium azide in water followed by a click cyclization reaction with an alkyne at room temperature in air without any additives. The reusability of the prepared nanocatalyst was successfully examined four times with only a very slight loss of catalytic activity.
