In this study, the transfer hydrogenation reduction of acetophenone using supported nickel on MOF as catalyst was investigated. BBD and RSM were employed to investigate the effect of the experimental parameters such as Ni content, catalyst content, temperature, and reaction time. Optimum reaction conditions for the formation of 1-phenylethanol were 45% mol of Ni content, 0.11 g of catalyst, reaction temperature at 83 °C, and reaction time 90 min. The catalyst was characterized by FESEM, EDX, FT-IR, XRD, and H2-TPR techniques. The catalyst-free reaction phase was analyzed by AAS, and fortunately, no leaching of nickel was detected.
