    Palladium nanoparticles supported on EDTA-modified Fe3O4@SiO2 nanospheres was used in Suzuki cross-coupling reactions of various aryl halides under green conditions. Furthermore, we have reported this recyclable catalytic system for Sonogashira cross-coupling reactions under copper and ligand-free conditions in the presence of DMF/H2O (1:2/v:v) as a solvent.

    The composition coordination mode and geometry of the complexes were established on the basis of elemental analyses, IR spectra and thermal analysis. The results suggested that the formulae of the prepared complexes as [Co(Ln)(O2CCH3)(OH2)2] mH2O. IR spectra show that the ligands act as monobasic bidentate ligands by coordinating via the nitrogen atom of the deprotonated –NH group and the carbonyl group and forming a six-membered chelating ring. The X-ray diffraction patterns of Co(II) complexes were observed many peaks which indicate the polycrystalline nature. The Co(II) complexes were tested against various Gram-positive bacteria, Gram-negative bacteria and funguses. The relationship between the values of HOMO–LUMO energy gap (ΔE) and the values of intrinsic binding constant (Kb) is revealed increasing of HOMO–LUMO energy gap accompanied by the decrease of Kb.

  5. A one-pot method for synthesis of reduced graphene oxide-supported Cu–Cu2O and catalytic application in tandem reaction of halides and sodium azide with terminal alkynes

    Reduced graphene oxide (RGO)-supported Cu–Cu2O nanocomposite (Cu-Cu2O@RGO) was prepared through one-pot reflux synthesis. Cu-Cu2O@RGO as a heterogeneous catalyst was applied to tandem reactions of halides and sodium azide with terminal alkynes to synthesize 1,4-disubstituted 1,2,3-triazoles. Cu-Cu2O@RGO as a green and efficient catalyst was recoverable, easy to separate and highly stable in the tandem method for synthesis of 1,2,3-triazole compounds.
