Photocatalytic degradation of methylene blue through carbon dot-doped and amino-functionalized ZIF-8

  This paper uses a one-step synthesis method to prepare NH2-ZIF-8/NCDs porous materials. A series of composite photocatalysts were obtained by adjusting the additional amount of nitrogen-doped carbon quantum dots (NCDs). The structural characteristics of the nanocomposites were characterized using XRD, FTIR, FESEM, TEM, and BET. The photocatalytic activity of NH2-ZIF-8/NCDs nanocomposites was investigated through […]

One-Pot Strategic Synthesis of 1,3,5-Pyrazoline Derivatives using NiFe2O4.Cu(OH)2 Magnetic Nanocomposite as Heterogeneous Catalyst and their Theoretical Studies as Antifungal Agents

  Continued research on pyrazoline derivatives with excellent biological activities has encouraged us to design and synthesize 1,3,5-trisubstituted pyrazoline series introducing NiFe2O4.Cu(OH)2 magnetic nanocomposite as a heterogeneous catalyst by the combination of highly substituted aryl aldehydes, substituted acetophenones, and acetyl hydrazine hydrate under ultrasound irradiation at 50oC. The NiFe2O4.Cu(OH)2 magnetic nanocomposite materials are characterized by […]

Introduction of Fe3O4@MCM-41/Zr@Piperazine as an efficient catalyst for the protection of alcohols and amines

  This article investigates an efficient and eco-friendly protocol for protecting amines and alcohols as important molecules in organic chemistry, using Fe3O4@MCM-41/Zr@Piperazine as a newly reported magnetic mesoporous nanostructured catalyst. Firstly, the protection of alcohols was developed through their transformation to trimethylsilyl ethers. Then this reagent was applied for the acceleration of the acetylation of […]
