Palladium(0) nanoparticles supported on the external surface of Cu-3(btc)(2) framework (PdNPs@Cu-3(btc)(2)) were in-situ generated from the reduction of Pd(acac)2 precursor impregnated on the Cu-3(btc)(2) support during the dehydrogenation of dimethylamine-borane in toluene at room temperature. The characterization of PdNPs@Cu-3(btc)(2) by using advanced analytical techniques shows the formation of well-dispersed palladium(0) nanoparticles supported on Cu-3(btc)(2) surface. These new palladium(0) nanoparticles were found to be the most active and the longest-lived nanocatalyst with superior reusability performance in the dehydrogenation of dimethylamine-borane at room temperature.
