Robust C-PdNi-CNF Sandwich-Structured Catalyst for Suzuki Reactions and Experimental Study on the Mechanism

ACS Omega. 2022 Aug 15;7(34):29747-29754. doi: 10.1021/acsomega.2c02400. eCollection 2022 Aug 30.


The stability of metal nanoparticles is one of the key issues for their catalytic applications. In this study, we fabricated a sandwich structure to protect the metal nanoparticles. A carbon layer was used to wrap the PdNi nanoparticles on the carbon fiber, and the whole preparation process was simple and green. Electron transfer occurs between the carbon layer and the metal nanoparticles, making the two more closely combined. As a catalyst for the Suzuki reaction, it exhibits highly efficient catalysis and excellent stability. The calculated TOF reaches 18 662 h-1. After nine cycles, there was almost no decrease in performance. Additionally, we found that the addition of iodobenzene into the chlorobenzene reaction system could significantly improve the chlorobenzene conversion, and we proved that the catalyst has fine activity and stability with a bright future in commercial applications. The possible catalytic mechanism of Suzuki reaction was proposed based on experimental results. This study provides a simple and green method to prepare encapsulated metal nanoparticle catalysts and gives a deep insight into Suzuki reaction.
