Nanocatalysts revolutionize organic chemistry for the conversion of various organic reactions to obtain a high yield, low hazard and stability. It plays an important role in the transformation of organic reactions due to its high surface area, small size, and low reaction time. Therefore, green methodology, both in the synthesis of nanocatalysts and organic transformation reactions, is an advanced technology, and findings promise results. Many scientists all over the world synthesised nanoparticles and used them as catalysts in Knoevenagel condensation. In this book chapter, we documented the synthesis and characterisation techniques of the homo/hetero metallic nanocatalyst and applied it in the Knoevenagel condensation reaction for its reusability and easy separation after a chemical reaction because, in organic chemistry, separation is a tedious job for finding pure compounds.

Keywords: Bimetallic Nanocatalysts, Characterisation, Green synthesis, Knoevenagel, Magnetic nanoparticles, Microwave, Organic Transformation.
