Abstract

Bimetallic Ag-Pd nanoparticles supported on TiO2 have been prepared using Ocimum tenuiflorum leaf extract and characterized by UV-visible, SEM, SEM-EDS, TEM, SAED pattern and XPS analysis. This heterogeneous catalyst is efficient for oxidation reactions of alcohol and can be reused upto 5th cycles. Use of low cost and non-toxic TiO2 as support is an additional advantage to this catalyst.
