Phosphino-decorated polymer immobilised ionic liquid phase stabilised palladium nanoparticles (PdNP@PPh2-PIILP) and its PEGylated counterpart (PdNP@PPh2-PEGPIILP) are remarkably active and exceptionally selective catalysts for the aqueous phase hydrogenation of a,b-unsaturated aldehydes, ketones, esters and nitriles with PdNP@PPh2-PEGPIILP giving complete conversion and 100% selectivity for reduction of the C=C bond, under mild conditions. This is the most selective PdNP-based system to be reported for the aqueous phase hydrogenation of this class of substrate.
