Noble metal nanostructures of varying compositions and shapes are loaded on cotton fabrics. The fabric-supported metal nanostructures can function as effective catalysts for different liquid-phase catalytic reactions. They exhibit superior recyclability, with the catalytic activities remaining nearly unchanged even after ten cycles of catalytic reactions for all of the three tested reactions.
