Ferritin-supported palladium nanoclusters: selective catalysts for aerobic oxidations in water.


Confinement of nanometallic Pd within the core of a hyperthermophilic ferritin cage (from Pyrococcus furiosus) is reported. The resulting nanostructured hybrid catalysts can be used for highly specific aerobic oxidation of alcohols in water.
