• Dendrimer encapsulated gold nanoparticles were synthesized.
• The nanoparticles were immobilized in a membrane bag.
• Nitrophenol reduction was evaluated.
• No gold leaching was observed.
• Nitrophenol reduction appeared to be a purely heterogeneous reaction
Generation 4 PAMAM-NH2 dendrimers were used as template to synthesize Au13- and Au100-dendrimer-encapsulated nanoparticles (Au-DENs) with an average diameter of 2.1 ± 0.3 and 3.1 ± 0.5 nm respectively. Au-DENs were characterized using various techniques. Catalytic recycling of Au-DENs using a dialysis membrane bag in the reduction of 4-NP is presented. The reduction process was primarily monitored by UV–vis spectroscopy at around λ 400 nm. The catalyst was found to exhibit a very good activity and stability even after more than 3 catalytic reaction cycles without any leaching, confirming that the reduction of 4-NP is purely a heterogeneous reaction.
