Silver decorated graphene-polyvinyl alcohol hybrid hydrogel as catalyst for benzonitrile conversion
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2017
In this work, we have synthetized a reduced graphene oxide functionalized with silver nanoparticles (G/Ag) by a method developed in our previous study and incorporated it in a hydrogel based on polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) as gelator through a freezing/thawing method. The hydrogel has been tested to catalyze the reduction at room temperature of nitrile group of benzonitrile in water by using glucose as a natural and mild reducing agent.
