Recyclable bimetallic CuMoO4 nanoparticles for C–N cross-coupling reaction under mild conditions†
Herein we disclosed inexpensive copper(II) bimetallic CuMoO4 nanoparticles for the C–N cross-coupling reaction of alkyl and aryl amines with haloarenes. The reaction proceeds under mild and ligand free conditions. The catalyst is recyclable and effective for a wide range of amines and haloarenes. Here, the efficiency of the Cu(II) catalyst is increased by doping molybdenum metal. The bimetallic nanoparticles are anticipated to proceed via normal oxidative addition and reductive eliminations.
