Fine chemistry products such as agro-chemicals or pharmaceuticals require ketones and/or aldehydes as starting materials, which are obtained by alcohols oxidation. Nowadays it is imperative converting alcohols into the desired oxidized forms in a sustainable way. This paper is focused on the use of cheap EDTA functionalized magnetite type magnetic nanoparticles as reusable catalysts for the selective oxidation of alcohols to aldehydes or ketones in solvent-free medium and using the green alternative microwave energy source. Additional advantages of using these materials are their high accessible surface area and easy separation from the reaction medium by an external magnet. View Paper here.
