Magnet cum laude: The use of magnetic nanoparticles in catalysis has been a major development at the frontiers of both symmetric and asymmetric syntheses. Magnetic nanoparticle-supported catalyst systems have made remarkable progress from activity and recyclability standpoints. This Minireview addresses recent catalytic applications of magnetic nanocomposites, including a discussion of commonly used synthetic methods.
