We report the synthesis of  recoverable magnetic nano catalyst Pd@ Fe3O4 and its utility as a recyclable catalyst for reduction of
 nitrogroup . the catalyst is easily removed from the reaction media by an external magnetic field and can be re-used for at least 10 times without any considerable loss in its activity. The catalyst was characterized by scanning electron microscopy (SEM), thermal gravimetric analysis (TGA), inductively coupled plasma spectroscopy (ICP), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), CHN analysis, and vibrating sample magnetometery (VSM).
