Pd(0) supported on N-doped graphene quantum dot modified cellulose as an efficient catalyst for the green reduction of nitroaromatics

Author affiliations

Abstract

A new efficient catalyst was introduced for the green reduction of nitroaromatics. The catalyst was obtained via modification of cellulose with N-doped graphene quantum dots and Pd nanoparticles. The new cellulose nanocomposite after characterization was applied as the catalyst in the reduction reaction of nitroaromatics using NaBH4 at room temperature. Aromatic amines were obtained as the product of the reduction reaction over 2 h. This reaction has green reaction conditions such as mild reaction conditions, high yield, green solvent and recyclable catalyst. Also, the recovered catalyst is applicable in the reduction reaction 6 times without significant decrease in activity.
