Catalyst design and surface modifications of magnetic nanoparticles have become attractive strategies in order to optimize catalyzed organic reactions for industrial applications. In this work, silica-coated magnetic nanoparticles with a core-shell type structure were prepared. The obtained material was successfully functionalized with sulfathiazole groups, which can enhance its catalytic features. The material was fully characterized, using a multi-technique approach. The catalytic performance of the as-synthesized material was evaluated in (1) the oxidation of benzyl alcohol to benzaldehyde and (2) the microwave-assisted alkylation of toluene with benzyl chloride. Remarkable conversion and selectivity were obtained for both reactions and a clear improvement of the catalytic properties was observed in comparison with unmodified γ-Fe2O3/SiO2 and γ-Fe2O3. Noticeably, the catalyst displayed outstanding magnetic characteristics which facilitated its recovery and reusability.

Magnetically separable nanocatalysts were synthesized by incorporating ironnanoparticles on a mesoporous aluminosilicate (Al-SBA-15) through a mechanochemical grindingpathway in a single step. Noticeably, magnetic features were achieved by employing biomass wasteas a carbon source, which additionally may confer high oxygen functionalities to the resultingmaterial. The resulting catalysts were characterized using X-ray diffraction, X-ray photoelectronspectroscopy, transmission electron microscopy, scanning electron microscopy, porosimetry, andmagnetic susceptibility. The magnetic nanocatalysts were tested in the selective oxidative cleavagereaction of isoeugenol and vanillyl alcohol to vanillin. As a result, the magnetic nanocatalystsdemonstrated high catalytic activity, chemical stability, and enormous separation/reusabilityqualities. The origin of catalytic properties and its relationship with the iron oxide precursor wereanalyzed in terms of the chemical, morphological, and structural properties of the samples. Suchanalysis allows, thus, to highlight the superficial concentration of the iron entities and the interactionwith Al as key factors to obtain a good catalytic response.
