Author(s): Potu Ramchander, Kota Shivakumar, Battu Satyanarayana

Mixed metal oxide CuO/SnO2 was considered as an apt heterogeneous catalyst for carbonyl group protection with phenyl hydrazine, under solvent free condition at room temperature. The catalyst was recovered by easy filtration and reused for further reactions. The catalyst was prepared by wet impregnation method and characterized by XRD, SEM, EDX, FTIR, and UV-DRS methods.
