From waste!! Gram-negative bacteria from the genus Cupriavidus can serve as a scaffold for the absorption and reduction of palladium(II) contained in industrial waste solutions. The resulting cell-supported palladium(0) nanoparticles were active for catalysis of C[BOND]C bond formation. This method offers an economically competitive source of palladium(0) via recovery from metal-containing waste.
