oa South African Journal of Chemical Engineering - Green synthesis & catalytic study of sucrose stabilized Pd nanoparticles in reduction of nitro compounds to useful amines - research

Volume 25 Number 1
  • ISSN : 1026-9185



An efficient chemoselective reduction of aromatic nitro compounds to corresponding amino analogues was achieved using palladium/sucrose (Pd/S) nanoparticles as an eco friendly catalyst, a green approach formate in ethanol at RT. The reductions are fruitfully carried out in presence of various other reducible functional groups such as halo, alkoxy, carbonyl, and cyanide etc. The reactions are worthy and high yielding (100%).
