Abstract

Highly efficient and remarkable selective acetone conversion to isopropanol has been achieved via a heterogeneous catalytic hydrogenation of acetone by NaBH4 in the presence of semihollow palladium nanoparticles (PdNPs) grown on ITO substrate. PdNPs with high surface defect grown on an indium tin oxide (ITO) surface were prepared via a simple immersion of the substrate into a solution containing K2PdCl6, sodium dodecyl sulphate (SDS), and formic acid for 2 h at room temperature. The sample showed remarkably high heterogeneous catalytic efficiency by producing 99.8% of isopropanol within 6 min using only 0.28 μg of PdNPs on the ITO surface. The present system exhibits heterogenenous catalytic hydrogenation efficiency 1 × 10(6) time higher than using the conventional Raney Ni system.
