Phosphino-decorated polymer immobilised ionic liquid phase stabilised palladium nanoparticles (PdNP@PPh2-PIILP) and their PEGylated counterparts (PdNP@PPh2-PEGPIILP) are remarkably active and exceptionally selective catalysts for the aqueous phase hydrogenation of α,β-unsaturated aldehydes, ketones, esters and nitriles with PdNP@PPh2-PEGPIILP giving complete conversion and 100% selectivity for reduction of the C[double bond, length as m-dash]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 substrates.
