Herein we report a one pot organometallic strategy to access alumina-embedded Pd nanoparticles. Unexpectedly, the decomposition of the organometallic complex tris(dibenzylideneacetone) dipalladium(0), Pd-2(dba)(3), by dihydrogen in the presence of aluminum isopropoxide, Al(iPrO)(3), and without extra stabilizers, was found to be an efficient method to generate a Pd colloidal solution. Careful characterization studies revealed that the so-obtained Pd nanoparticles were stabilized by an aluminum isopropoxide tetramer and 1,5-diphenyl-pentan-3-one, which was produced after reduction of the dba ligand from the organometallic precursor. Moreover, calcination of the obtained nanomaterial in air at 773 K for 2 h resulted in a nanocomposite material containing Pd nanoparticles embedded in Al2O3. This stabilization strategy opens new possibilities for the preparation of transition metal nanoparticles embedded in oxides. (AU)
