Abstract [en]

Nano-metal oxides gained considerable importance due to theirdistinct catalytic activities in various organic transformations dueto the combination of high surface area and unusually reactivemorphologies. ZnO is an important semiconductor material, witha wide range of applications including: pigments, cosmetics,chemical sensors, solar cells and optoelectronics. Additionally,ZnO nanocrystals (NCs) are an eco-friendly, non-toxic,inexpensive and commercially available material, which isstarting to be exploited as a potentially economical and highlyefficient catalyst for a plethora of organic reactions. Herein, wereview fundamentals of ZnO NCs preparation and the recentdevelopments in reactions catalysed by ZnO NCs with specialfocus on solventless transformations.
