Abstract

In this work, palladium nanoparticles were synthesized using one-pot synthesis utilizing porcine gastric mucin glycoproteins as reducing and capping agents. It is shown that the particles exhibited noticeable catalytic activity through both nitrophenol reduction and Suzuki-Miyaura coupling reactions. The catalytic performance was demonstrated with exceptionally high product yield, a fast reaction rate, and low catalyst use. The palladium-mucin composites obtained could be used in particle solution and as hydrogel catalysts to increase their reusability for at least ten reaction cycles with minimum loss in their catalytic effectiveness.
