Ferrite supported copper nanocomposite catalyst has been synthesized and characterized by TEM, SEM-EDS mapping, XRD, XPS and ICP-AES analysis. This nanocomposite is found to be more efficient and versatile towards carbonyl and nitro reduction under mild reaction condition with very good yield and turn over number. The catalyst is magnetically recoverable and also reusable for a minimum of four catalytic cycles.
