Introduction

Generally, nanoscale heterogeneous catalysts offer higher surface area and low-coordinated sites, which are responsible for the higher catalytic activity. [¹] Particularly, in recent years the application of copper oxide nanoparticles for organic reactions has attracted immense attention.

Indeed, the copper nanoparticle catalyzed reactions provide the advantages of high atom efficiency, simplified isolation of product, and easy recovery and recyclability of the catalyst. [²-4] This catalyst appears as one of the most promising solutions toward efficient reactions under mild and environmentally benign conditions in the context of green chemistry.
