Palladium nanoparticles green synthesis using fructose as stabilizing agent: Magnetic properties and hydrogen reactivityAuthor(s): El Said A.Nouh
The development of dependable, environmentally benign processes for the synthesis of nanoscale materials is an important aspect of nanotechnology. In the present study we report a simple method for palladium nanoparticles preparation using hydroxylamine reducing agent and water as solvent under ambient conditions. The effect of fructose as stabilizing agent on Pd nanoparticles preparation was studied. Palladium nanoparticles show aggregation at low fructose concentration. The Pd- NPs particles are characterized by UVÂÂVis, XRD, and SEM techniques. Detailed magnetic characterization indicated that these palladium nanoparticles show ferromagnetic properties at room and low temperature and show more enhancement in magnetic properties after exposure to hydrogen.
