Oxidation reactions play a pivotal role in chemical synthesis. Its wide range
of industrial applications and processing, however, make use of corrosive chemicals
and harsh reaction conditions, which create threats to the ecosystem, environment, and
public health. Also, the traditional homogeneous catalysts used for this purpose get
easily deactivated. Heterogeneous catalysts with various supports have been developed
to achieve more environmentally benign conditions as well as to defeat other
disadvantages of homogeneous catalysts. Nanomaterials, due to their large surface
available to reactants and ease of separation, show promising applications in
heterogeneous catalysis and lead towards a greener way of synthesis. The current
chapter enlists the applications of nanocatalysts in the oxidation reactions of various
organic molecules.

Keywords: Composite/hybrid nanoparticles, Heterogeneous catalyst, Metaloxide, Nanomaterials, Oxidation.
