MAGNETICALLY SEPARABLE CuFe2O4 NANOPARTICLES: AN
EFFICIENT CATALYST FOR THE SYNTHESIS OF
QUINOXALINE DERIVATIVES IN TAP-WATER UNDER
SONICATIONAnshu Dandia, Ruby Singh, Jyoti Joshi, Shuchi Maheshwari.
A simple and rapid synthetic methodology has been explored exhibiting the use of a magnetically separable copper ferrite (CuFe2O4)
nanocatalyst in water for the construction of medicinally privileged quinoxalines under sonication. High catalytic activity and ease of
recovery using an external magnetic field are additional eco-friendly attributes of this catalytic system.
Key words: Magnetically separable nanoparticles, quinoxaline derivatives, one-pot synthesis, ultrasound irradiation
