Abstract

Noble metal assisted catalytic activity is a renounced adopted strategy since long times. Herein, we report an arresting of silver nanoparticles onto solid surface resin matrix in order to perform catalytic activity taking by 4-nitrophenol as a model feed agent. The surface decoration has been evidenced by electron microscopy techniques. The superiority of this resin-confined Ag nanoparticle based catalyst lies in their fast reduction and wide range of working temperature. The thermodynamic parameters related to activation energy, temperature dependency, and reusability can make this a suitable ‘easy to install’ all-solid-state fabricated catalytic membrane device.
