Magnetic nanoparticles derived from iron oxide, for example, magnetite
(Fe3O4) and maghemite (γ-Fe2O3), fulfill most of these requirements, and recent advances
in their synthesis give access to size-controlled monodisperse particles. Hybrid
magnetic materials have been synthesized from organic compounds and metal or metal
oxide nanoparticles and examined as catalysts for the organic synthesis. When the reaction
has been completed, the catalysts can be easily separated by simple external magnetic decantation.
Keywords: Hybrid magnetic materials, click chemistry, green chemistry, nanocatalyst, magnetic separation.
