We report the development of a silicon nanowire array-stabilized palladium nanoparticle catalyst, SiNA-Pd. Its use in the palladium-catalyzed Mizoroki-Heck reaction, the hydrogenation of an alkene, the hydrogenolysis of nitrobenzene,the hydrosilylation of an a,b-unsaturated ketone, and
the C-H bond functionalization reactions of thiophenes and indoles achieved a quantitative production with high reusability.The catalytic activity reached several hundred-mol ppb of
palladium, reaching a TON of 2000 000.
