Biogenic CuFe2O4 magnetic nanoparticles as a green, reusable and excellent nanocatalyst for the acetylation reaction under solvent-free conditions

Abstract

A convenient green method has been developed for the synthesis of biogenic CuFe2O4 magnetic nanoparticles using tea extracts within a very short reaction of time. The catalyst was characterized by XRD, XPS, SEM and TEM study. The prepared nanoparticles with average size of 8.78 nm had been used as an effective catalyst for the acetylation of various alcohols, phenols and amines in good to excellent yields under solvent free conditions. The easy recovery and reuse of the catalyst without loss of its activity was demonstrated by XRD, TEM and the magnetic study of the fresh and recycled catalyst after fourth cycle. The main advantages of this protocol are simple biogenic synthesis of the catalyst, reusable and heterogeneous catalytic system, and short reaction time with excellent yields
