In the present research article, an effective method has been employed for the synthesis of β-enaminones by using a supported molybdenum oxide (MoO3)-Ferrite (Fe3O4) as a catalyst. The synthesized magnetic nanocat-Fe-Mo was confirmed well by several analytical techniques like XRD, XPS, SEM and TEM spectroscopy. The reaction between primary amines and 1, 3-dicarbonyl compounds was carried out under solvent-free conditions with low catalyst loading. Proposed method gives good to excellent yields (86-96%), short transformation time, easy work-up and reusability of the catalyst which thoroughly touch the green transformation.
