New Pd-polyaniline composites for catalytic hydrogenation of quinoline
Development of new efficient catalysts for hydrogenation of organic compounds is important task of modern physical chemistry. Change of carrier for metallic nanoparticles can make significant influence on the catalytic activity of the system  and can be one of the ways for reduction of the platinum-group-metals content. Moreover, the size, shape and catalytic activity of metallic nanoparticles can depend on the nature of the carrier used for preparation of the composite. The aim of this study was to reveal the specific features of the composites, prepared by deposition of Pd nanoparticles on polyaniline (PANI), and to evaluate the influence of such composites structure on their catalytic efficiency in hydrogenation of quinoline.
