Project TitleA nano-composite catalyst: Pd nanoparticles deposited on Cellulose nanocrystallites
Track Code12013
Short Description

The intellectual property relates to monodisperse Palladium nanoparticles (PdNPs) uniformly deposited onto colloidal cellulose nanocrystallites (CNCs). The resulting nano-composite material (3.6 + 0.8 nm) is a convenient catalyst for hydrogenation reactions in water under mild  conditions. The process is exemplified by a model Heck reaction and the conversion of phenol to cyclohexanone.
