A new procedure for the highly regioselective aerobic bromination of aromatic compounds in the presence of copper-based nanoparticles (CuO/ZnO nanocatalyst) under reflux condition is described. Mechanistic parameters are discussed and the plausible mechanism is proposed. Recyclability of the CuO/ZnO nanocatalyst has also been explored upon aerobic bromination of aromatic compounds.
