Abstract: BIOFUELS HAVE ATTRACTED SIGNIFICANT INTEREST AS RENEWABLE AND CLEANER ALTERNATIVE TO PETROLEUM-BASED FUELS. ACID CATALYSTS HAVE BEEN WIDELY USED FOR THE KEY REACTIONS IN BIOFUEL PRODUCTION. NEVERTHELESS, THE CURRENTLY AVAILABLE HOMOGENEOUS AND HETEROGENEOUS ACID CATALYSTS SUFFER FROM MANY DRAWBACKS. IN THIS THESIS, NOVEL ACID-FUNCTIONALIZED MAGNETIC NANOPARTICLES (MNPS) WERE SUCCESSFULLY DEVELOPED AS ACTIVE AND RECYCLABLE SOLID ACID CATALYSTS FOR THE EFFICIENT PRODUCTION OF BIOFUEL WITH GOOD DISPERSIBILITY, HIGH ACIDITY, AND SIMPLE MAGNETIC SEPARATION.
