A nano-sized Magnesia- Zirconia (nano-MgO-ZrO2) catalyst was prepared by a simple ultradilution co-precipitation method and by using inexpensive precursors. The nano-MgO-ZrO2 was extensively characterized by SIMS together with other analytical techniques such as X-ray diffraction (XRD) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The nano-MgO-ZrO2 catalyst proved to be very efficient for the reduction of carbonyl compounds and multicomponent reactions under mild reaction conditions. The recyclability and reusability of the nano-MgO-ZrO2 catalyst has been tested.
