In recent few decades, magnetic nanoparticles have emerged as an ideal support for catalysts because of their easy preparation and functionalization, low toxicity and price. Magnetic nanoparticles-supported catalysts have been used to catalyze lots of organic reactions, including C–C bond form reaction, hydrogenation reaction, oxidation reaction, phase–transfer reaction and dihydroxylation reaction. They can be recovered easily by an external magnet and reused several times with sustained activities. In this review, the application of magnetite nanoparticles-supported organic small molecule or biocatalyst in organic reactions will be summarized.

Keywords: Organocatalysis, Immobilization, Magnetic nanoparticles, Magnetic separation, Reusability.
