The primary objectives of this research is to : a) understand the effect of method of preparation of Fe, Co, Ni and Cu oxide nanoparticles on their catalytic activity. b) evaluate the influence of the structure of the porous supports on the catalytic activity of the oxide nanoparticles in the synthesis of organic fine chemicals via oxidation-reduction reactions. c) explain possible structure-catalytic activity correlation.
