Title: Rapid ecosynthesis of TiO2@CuO@Chromite nanocatalyst for environmentally friendly applications: solventless cyanation of aldehydes and high efficient treatment of sewage waters
Due to the large surface area of green-synthesized TiO2@CuO@Chromite nanocatalysts (NCs) and accumulations of bioactive phytochemicals on its surface, it was used for an efficient and safe synthesis of nitriles and also an environmentally friendly process of water treatment. For the first time, a rapid, economic, one-pot, solventless and safe protocol is presented for ecosynthesis of TiO2@CuO@Chromite nanocatalysts (NCs) to efficient, ligand-free and solventless synthesis of aromatic nitriles through the cyanation of aldehydes at room temperature. Furthermore, the eco-NCs were used as a potent adsorbent for physical and biological treatment of sewage waters collected around the natural and residential area of northern parts of the Soran city in Iraq at room temperature.
