We synthesized an ultra-fine Pd nanocatalyst supported by ionic block copolymer doped reduced graphene oxide (Pd-PIBrGO) for ultra-accelerated nanocatalysis. This hybrid catalyst exhibited exceptionally advanced catalytic performance for the reduction of methylene blue using miniscule quantities of Pd-PIBrGO due to facilitated diffusion of reagents, resulting in full reduction within a few seconds and showing a 280-fold increase of the rate constant over Pd-rGO without ionic block copolymers.
