Abstract

Palladium nanoparticles (PdNPs) were conveniently prepared in tetraglyme (TG) solution using a variety of palladium precursors. At 140°C, TG promoted Pd 3(OAc) 6 to produce irregular shaped PdNPs with an average size of 4 nm. When these PdNPs were re-dispersed in TG and used for the dehydrogenation of ammonia borane (AB) at 85°C, remarkably enhanced catalytic performance was achieved to release 2.3 equiv. of H 2 in 1 h.
