Preparation of Palladium Nano-Particles by Electrospinning and its Application in Hydrogenations
a novel fibrous catalyst containing palladium nano-particles was produced via electrospinning technique. The fibrous catalyst was characterized by scanning electron microscopy and transmission electron microscopy respectively, the results showed that the diameter of fiber was about 200 nm and the palladium (Pd) particles were in the range of 30~40 nm. The catalyst was tested in hydrogenations of α-olefins, cyclohexene and nitrobenzol in ethanol at room temperature under 1 atmosphere hydrogen. The results showed that the titled catalyst had high activity in the hydrogenations of α-olefins, cyclohexene and nitrobenzol.
