Porous single-crystalline palladium nanoparticles with high catalytic activities

Angew Chem Int Ed Engl. 2012 May 14;51(20):4872-6. doi: 10.1002/anie.201107376. Epub 2012 Apr 4.


Palladium's pore cousin: a facile approach is described for the size-controlled preparation of porous single-crystalline Pd nanoparticles. These porous Pd nanoparticles exhibit size-independent catalytic activities for the Suzuki coupling and are more active than commercial Pd/C catalysts.
