Abstract: Nanostructured regular materials based on dendrimers bound by covalent or coordination bonds between surface functional groups were synthesized. Bimetallic Cu(II) and Pd(II) metal complexes with nitrile-based dendrimers demonstrated high activity in Wacker oxidation of terminal alkenes along with good selectivity for methylketone formation. New heterogeneous catalysts based on Pd nanoparticles and cross-linked polypropylene imine (PPI) and polyamidoamine (PAMAM) dendrimers were prepared and examined for selective hydrogenation of unsaturated compounds.
