The MoOx/nitrogenous ligand (pyridine (1), imidazole (2), ethylenediamine (3) and aniline (4)) hybrids with wire morphology were synthesized via an easy wet chemical method at room temperature in water. The hybrid products were characterized by different methods, including X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR), N2-adsorption/desorption and elemental analysis. Then, these materials were used and compared in Knoevenagel condensation reaction as heterogeneous bi-functional catalysts. For most of the aldehydes in the reaction with malononitrile, the yields were above 95%. The reactions were carried out in aqueous media under mild temperature. In addition no extra base or acid were used. The catalysts were very stable under these conditions and after 12 cycles reaction under optimized conditions, no remarkable decrease of catalytic efficiency was detected. It was found that the efficiency of the hybrid catalyst was changed by synthesized structures with different ligands with different acidic strength.
