Development of a novel approach for synthesizing nanostructured catalysts and achieving further improvements in catalytic activity, effectiveness, and efficiency remains a major challenge. In this report, we describe the preparation of a nanostructured PdO/[email protected]2 hybrid nanocatalyst featuring well-dispersed PdO nanoparticles within hollow [email protected]2. The as-prepared PdO/[email protected]2 hybrid nanocatalyst exhibited good morphological features, derived from the controlled stepwise synthesis from Pd/[email protected]@mSiO2 (PS = polystyrene). The morphology, size, oxidation state, crystallinity, and thermal stability of the prepared PdO/[email protected]2 hybrid nanocatalyst were confirmed by a series of physicochemical techniques. The PdO/[email protected]2 hybrid nanocatalyst showed very high catalytic efficiency in the reduction of 4-nitrophenol and various nitroarenes under eco-friendly conditions. Therefore, the PdO/[email protected]2 hybrid nanocatalyst is a promising alternative catalyst for applications in environmental remediation. View Full-Text
