Recovery of In Situ-generated Pd Nanoparticles with Linear Polystyrene


Palladium nanoparticles generated in situ for Suzuki coupling reactions and aerobic alcohol oxidation in water were recovered completely using linear polystyrene. The resultant polystyrene-stabilized palladium nanoparticles were shown to be reusable without any loss of activity.
