By encapsulating graphene oxide in palladium metal nanoparticles and reporting the first application of the resulting metal-organic alloys to nitrobenzene hydrogenation with hydrazine at room temperature, we introduce a completely new class of catalytic materials dubbed herein “GrafeoPlad” for designing platinum-group metals doped with 3D entrapped graphene oxide. This new class of hybrid materials opens practically relevant new perspectives in many areas of today’s catalysis science and technology.
