Abstract

A nanocatalyst comprising ultra-small Pd/PdO nanoparticles (<5 nm) supported on maghemite was prepared by a co-precipitation protocol using inexpensive raw materials and was deployed successfully in various significant synthetic transformations, namely the Heck–Mizoroki olefination (up to 95%), the Suzuki reaction (60–95%), and the allylic oxidation of alkenes under milder conditions. The chemical nature, morphology, size, and loading of palladium nanoparticles over the magnetic support were studied by TEM/EDX, HAADF-STEM chemical mapping, XPS, AAS, and in-field 57Fe Mössbauer spectroscopy. The cost-effective catalyst could be easily separated from the reaction mixture by using an external magnet and reused four times without any loss of activity; chemical stability and recyclability aspects of the catalyst were investigated.
