Metal oxides have been used in several organic syntheses due to their unique properties and emerged as a potential alternative to various industrial catalysts. The bare metal oxides have found direct applications as a catalyst or used as a support to get highly active catalysts. The organic reactions are usually carried out using solvents but possess several economical and environmental problems due to these toxic solvents. The alternative and most effective methods of using solvent-free synthesis have received lots of attention in recent times. This chapter includes a detailed discussion about the application of different metal oxides as catalysts or supports in solvent-free organic reactions. Combining the solvent-free conditions with the metal oxides based catalyst system has shown promising results for various synthesis. The above protocol has offered several advantages such as easy workup, short reaction duration, high product yield, easy separation of catalyst, and high reusability.
