Palladium nanoparticles functionalized graphene xerogel for catalytic dye reduction

Abstract

We report a method to synthesize a palladium-functionalized porous graphene xerogel structure. Graphene xerogel nanocomposite with three-dimensional microstructures was obtained by chemical reduction of an aqueous dispersion of graphene oxide at mild temperature. After the graphene hydrogel has been placed in a K2PdCl4 solution, the spontaneous redox reaction between the reduced graphene and Pd2+ takes place, leading to the formation of nano hybrid materials consisting in a graphene porous matrix decorated with Pd nanoparticles. The final porosity of the material was tuned through drying of the graphene hydrogel by solvent evaporation. The porous palladium functionalized graphene xerogels were successfully used for the catalytic reduction of Rhodamine 6G.
