High activity heterogeneous catalysts by plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition of volatile palladium complexes on biomorphic carbon

Six new palladium complexes based on allyl and alkenolate ligands were synthesized and structurally characterized. Combination of delocalized allylic sp2-hybridized carbon centers and a strongly binding NˆO chelating unit (e.g., 3,3,3-trifluoro(pyridin-2-yl)propen-2-ol) offered a promising combination of high volatility and thermal lability not commonly observed in noble metal precursors. Application of the new Pd compounds in thermal metal–organic and plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition demonstrated their clean and efficient decomposition pathways, which in conjunction with their intriguing air stability made them efficient precursors for Pd films and clusters. Plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition of the palladium compounds on biomorphic carbon used as a porous substrate with high surface area and interconnected channels delivered recyclable carbon-supported Pd catalysts (Pd@BioC), which showed excellent selectivity, stability, and recyclability in CC coupling reactions.
