Performing a catalysis reaction on filter paper: development of a metal palladium nanoparticle-based catalyst

Author affiliations

Abstract

We report the polyethylenimine (PEI)-mediated immobilization of palladium nanoparticles (Pd NPs) onto filter paper for catalytic applications. In this work, filter paper was first assembled with PEI via electrostatic interaction, and the PEI-assembled filter paper was then complexed with PdCl42− ions, followed by sodium borohydride reduction to generate Pd NP-immobilized filter paper. Transmission electron microscopy reveals that Pd NPs have a diameter of 3 nm and are capable of being immobilized onto the filter paper. The Pd NP-immobilized filter paper exhibits remarkable catalytic activity and is reusable in the reductive transformation of Cr(VI) to Cr(III) and 4-nitrophenol to 4-aminophenol. The strategy used to develop Pd NP-immobilized filter paper could be adopted to generate other metal NP-immobilized filter papers for other applications such as sensing materials, energy, environmental remediation, and biomedical sciences.
