Bismuth ferrite (BiFeO3/BFO) was prepared using wet chemical route. Precursors were bismuth nitrate and iron nitrate and citric acid as chelating agent. Solid mass was given thermal treatment .The pre pared samples were characterized by XRD, SEM and BET method. BFO has several applications in physics and device applications. Applications of BFO as a highly efficient heterogeneous and recoverable catalyst for organic reactions were remain unattended. So applications of BFO for oxidation of primary alcohols are taken for study.
