Title: Tenable low cost metals nanoparticles for favorable oxidation of benzyl alcohol

Mohammad Sadiq

University of Malakand, Pakistan


Dr. Mohammad Sadiq, earned my MPhil and PhD in 2005 and 2009 respectively, funded by National Centre of Excellence in Physical Chemistry, University of Peshawar, Pakistan. Beside my PhD, I have worked as a researcher in Pher G Andersson research group at Uppsala University. I had joined Department of Chemistry University Malakand as Assistant Professor (TTS) in June 2011. During my service I am working on 4 funded projects as principal investigator (02 HEC, 01 PSF and 01 UOM) and one as Co-principal investigator (HEC) which worth approximately 1, 00,000/- US dollars. Total 35 papers and two research oriented books have been published in peer reviewed journals of national and international repute. Beside these, I have organized many HEC and UOM funded seminars and a member of organizing committee of HEC workshop on Innovation and Chemical Education (ICE-2012.) 


A series of nanoparticles, iron oxide (Fe3O4), cerium oxide (CeO2), cobalt oxide (Co2O3), gadolinium oxide (Gd2O3), iron-cerium (FeCe), iron-cobalt (FeCo), and manganese iron oxide (MnFe2O4) were synthesized using precipitation/co-precipitation method and characterized by scanning electron microscopy (SEM), x-ray diffraction (XRD), and Bruner-Emmet Teller (BET) surface area analysis techniques. The catalytic ability of each nanoparticle was tested with oxidation of benzyl alcohol to Benzaldehyde in the presence of molecular oxygen, in solvents as well as in solvent-free condition. Their efficiencies were compared in term of productivity (mmol/g.h). The results suggest that the activities of these catalysts are promising for industrial demands under the protocol of green chemistry.
