Carbon porous materials (CPMs) containing highly dispersed palladium nanoparticles (PdNPs) with an average size of ca. 5 nm were synthesized by microwave (MW) irradiation procedure, during which the Pd2+ions were effectively reduced to the Pd0form and highly dispersed on the carbon support. The Pd/CPM samples were characterized by a variety of analytical and spectroscopy techniques, viz. N2adsorption/desorption isotherm measurements, thermogravimetric analysis (TGA), X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning and field emission transmission electron microscopy (SEM/FETEM), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR), and Raman spectroscopy. The Pd/CPM composites were employed as heterogeneous catalysts for the reduction of 4-nitrophenol (4-NP) to 4-aminophenol (4-AP) in aqueous media. The reaction was monitored by UV-Visible spectroscopy, yielding a pseudo-first-order rate constant (k) of 6.87 × 10-2s-1. Moreover, the catalysts were exploited for C-C coupling reactions using the microwave (MW) method. In addition, a novel electrochemical sensor for the detection of 4-NP was developed based on a Pd/CPM-modified glassy carbon electrode (GCE) using cyclic voltammetry (CV) and differential pulse voltammetry (DPV) methods. The 4-NP sensor was found to exhibit excellent sensitivity, lower detection limit, reliability, and durability surpassing the reported modified electrodes, rendering practical industrial applications.
