© 2022 Wiley-VCH GmbH.This study describes the synthesis of Pd0 nanoparticles supported in hydrogel networks (SPVI@Pd) and their catalytic activity for the borane-morpholine complex (MB) hydrolysis reaction. In this respect, while our study is one of the limited number of studies reported for the catalytic hydrolysis of MB, it is the first study in which Pd0 nanoparticles supported in hydrogel networks were used in the catalytic hydrolysis of MB. The synthesized Pd0 nanoparticles were characterized using structural and morphological characterization techniques and as a result of these analyses, the sizes of Pd0 nanoparticles were determined average as 7.01±1.90 nm. The Ea value and the turnover frequency (TOF) value at 303 K for the SPVI@Pd3.0 catalyzed MB hydrolysis reaction were determined as 49.46 kJ/mol and 187.74 molH2 ⋅ molPd−1 ⋅ h−1. It was also observed that the SPVI@Pd3.0 catalyst had good catalytic activity even after eight cycles.
