Formamides were efficiently synthesized from N-formylation of amines using CoFe2O4 nanoparticles as a magnetically recoverable and reusable catalyst under ultrasound irradiation. The main advantages allocated to this method are chemoselectivity, reduced reaction times, high yields, magnetically recyclable catalyst, non-solvent green conditions and simple work-up procedure.

Keywords: N-formylation, amine, formic acid, sonochemistry, nano CoFe2O4.
