In this paper, the properties of a catalyst that composed of magnetic nanoparticles and Pectin biopolymer that is widely found in nature (Fe3O4@Pectin) to support nickel (II) acetate are discussed, and this catalyst was then used in response to the synthesis of aaldehyde derivatives. The heterogeneous catalyst was characterized by techniques such as FT-IR spectroscopy, FE-SEM, TEM, XRD spectroscopy, EDX spectroscopy and ICP spectroscopy. Then the catalyst was explored in the oxidation reaction of alcohols that has high efficiency and selectivity and the synthesized aldehydes. The most important advantages of this method are easy to work up procedure, perform the reaction in solvent-free conditions, and the catalyst can be separated by an external magnet and used several times without reducing the activity, which prevents environmental pollution.
