Synthesis of new magnetic reusable oil sorbent catalysts based on dodecanol and dodecyl sulfate: their application for oil/water separation

Magnetic nanoparticles (MNPs) were treated with dodecyl sulfate (DS) and dodecanol (DO) to enhance their affinity for lipids. Various methods, such as X-ray powder diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), vibrating sample magnetometery (VSM), thermal gravimetric analysis (TGA), and FTIR spectroscopy were employed to analyze and characterize these modified MNPs. The functionalized MNPs were employed […]

G/In2O3 nanocatalyst modified pencil graphite electrode for the electrochemical detection of Favipiravir

Favipiravir (FVP) was one of the promising medications for the treatment of Covid-19 patients. There are limited studies on the electrochemical performance of FVP. Hence it is interesting to study the electrochemical detection of FVP by cyclic voltammetry (CV), differential pulse voltammetry (DPV) and chronoamperometry. The G/In2O3 nanocatalyst was prepared by precipitation method and applied […]

Cascades Synthesis of N-Aryl Oxindole Nitrone Derivatives using Isatine Oximes and Arylboronic acids Catalyzed by Copper Acetate under Mild Conditions

Cu-catalysis was employed to create numerous (E)-5-bromo-N-aryl oxindole nitrones with satisfactory to excellent coupling efficiencies. This process involved the reaction of N-unprotected 5-bromoisatin-3-oximes and aryl-boronic acid derivatives under mild reactive conditions. Remarkably, the reaction exhibited tolerance towards several aryl-boronic acids containing diverse functional sensitivity subgroups (73% to 97% yields and 2 to 6 h). Extensive […]

Preparation of Fe3O4@APTES-TA-MA covalent organic framework nanocatalyst for the construction of N-amino-2-pyridone analogs

In this work, an efficient method for the construction of N-amino-2-pyridone analogs was performed using the condensation of aldehyde, malononitrile and cyanoacetohydrazide through Fe3O4@aminopropyltriethoxysilane-terephthaldehyde-melamine (Fe3O4@APTES-TA-MA) as an efficient recyclable magnetic covalent organic framework nanocatalyst in ethanol at reflux conditions. Fe3O4@APTES-TA-MA was characterized via FT-IR, EDS, SEM, TEM, VSM, and TGA methods. The average size of […]
