In this study, we synthesized a robust and sustainable catalyst Pd/SiO2 nanospheres. Further, its synthetic potential demonstrated for the direct reductive coupling of nitroarenes under green conditions. Whereas the reaction with Pd nanoparticles on other supporting materials such as modified carbon materials and TiO2, under similar conditions, resulted in exclusive formation of amines. Therefore, it confirmed that the SiO2 was found to be the best supporting material for the selective reductive coupling of nitroarenes. Also, the catalyst could be recycled up to five cycles with a marginal loss of product yield (<2% yield).
