Abstract

Coupling reactions are one of the most important transformations in organic chemistry. These reactions are powerful tolls for the construction of C-C, C-S, C-O and C-N bonds. The utilization of magnetic nanoparticles as catalyst have recently received great attention in chemistry science especially in organic synthesis. In recent times, copper ferrite nanoparticles (CuFe2O4 NPs) have attracted the profound attention of many chemists or researchers due to unique properties such as high stability, high activity and simple separation. In recent years, numerous methods have been reported based on copper ferrite nanoparticles (CuFe2O4 NPs) catalyzed coupling reactions. In this mini-review, we discussed on copper ferrite nanoparticles (CuFe2O4 NPs) and their catalytic activity in a library of coupling reactions.
