We describe a method for supporting palladium nanoparticles on magnetic nanoparticles using Euphorbia stracheyi Boiss root extract as the natural source of reducing and stabilizing agent. The progress of the reaction was monitored using UV-visible spectroscopy. The nanocatalyst was characterized by FE-SEM, TEM, XRD, EDS, FT-IR spectroscopy and ICP. The nanocatalyst was applied as an efficient, magnetically recoverable, highly reusable and heterogeneous catalyst for one-pot reductive amination of aldehydes at room temperature. The nanocatalyst was easily recovered by applying an external magnet and reused several times without considerable loss of activity. © 2015 Elsevier Inc. Source

For the first time the extract of the plant of Euphorbia granulate was used to green synthesis of Pd nanoparticles (NPs) as a heterogeneous catalyst for the phosphine-free Suzuki-Miyaura coupling reaction at room temperature. This method is a facile and eco-friendly way in organic synthesis using the plant extract as biomedia, bioreductant and capping ligand which considerably stabilizes the surface of Pd NPs. The presence of flavonoid and phenolics acids in the extract could be responsible for the reduction of Pd2+ ions and formation of the corresponding Pd NPs. © 2015 Elsevier Inc.. Source

A green synthesis process was developed for production of the Pd/TiO2 nanoparticles (NPs) without using toxic, hazardous and dangerous materials. Myrtus communis L. leaf extract serves as a mild, renewable and non-toxic reducing agent. The advantages of this biosynthesis method include use of cheap, clean, nontoxic and environmentally benign precursors and simple procedures without time-consuming polymerization and problems with treatment of a highly viscous polymeric resin. More importantly, the synthesized Pd/TiO2 NPs presented excellent catalytic activity for ligand-free Suzuki-Miyaura coupling which could be easily separated from the reaction mixture and reused many times with no loss of activity. Therefore, these properties indicate demonstrative benefits of the catalyst. The Pd/TiO2 NPs was characterized by FESEM, TEM, FT-IR, UV-vis spectroscopy and EDS. © 2015 Elsevier Inc. Source

This paper reports on the biosynthesis of copper nanoparticles (NPs) using extract of the Euphorbia esula L leaves as reductant and stabilizer without any surfactant. The catalytic efficiency of the prepared Cu NPs for the reduction of 4-nitrophenol and ligand-free Ullmann-coupling reaction is discussed. The Cu NPs were characterized with UV-vis, XRD and TEM methods. This method has the advantages of high yields, simple methodology, and elimination of ligand and easy work up.

A facile, efficient and environmentally-friendly protocol has been developed for the green synthesis of CuO nanoparticles (NPs) by aqueous extract of Gundelia tournefortii as a mild, renewable and non-toxic reducing agent. CuO NPs were characterized by SEM, TEM, XRD, EDS, FT-IR and UV-vis spectroscopy. More importantly, the green synthesized CuO NPs presented excellent catalytic activity for reduction of 4-nitrophenol and synthesis of N-monosubstituted ureas via hydration of cyanamides with the aid of acetaldoxime as an effective water surrogate in ethanol as a green solvent. The catalyst was easily separated and the recovered catalyst was reused many times without any significant loss of the catalytic activity. © 2015 Elsevier Inc. Source
