Magnetically recyclable nanocatalysts with excellent performance are urgent need in heterogeneous catalysis, due to their magnetic nature, which allows for convenient and efficient separation with the help of an external magnetic field. In this research, we developed a simple and rapid method to fabricate a magnetic aminoclay (AC) based an [email protected]3O4@Pd nanocatalyst by depositing palladium nanoparticles (Pd NPs) on the surface of the magnetic aminoclay nanocomposite. The microstructure and the magnetic properties of as-prepared [email protected]3O4@Pd were tested using transmission electron microscopy (TEM), energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS), X-ray diffraction (XRD), and vibrating sample magnetometry (VSM) analyses. The resultant [email protected]3O4@Pd nanocatalyst with the magnetic Fe-based inner shell, catalytically activate the outer noble metal shell, which when combined with ultrafine Pd NPs, synergistically enhanced the catalytic activity and recyclability in organocatalysis. As the aminoclay displayed good water dispersibility, the nanocatalyst indicated satisfactory catalytic performance in the reaction of reducing nitrophenol and nitroanilines to the corresponding aminobenzene derivatives. Meanwhile, the [email protected]3O4@Pd nanocatalyst exhibited excellent reusability, while still maintaining good activity after several catalytic cycles. View Full-Text
