Our study describes the synthesis of novel nanoscale Pd cage and wires whose sizes and shapes are templated by mesoporous matrices. The templates used are cubic phase MCM-48 and hexagonal phase CnMCM-41 (n = 16, and 22), SBA-15, which have pore diameters of ∼3, ∼3.8, ∼4.7, and ∼9 nm, respectively. For Pd@MCM-48, the Pd metal forms spherical domains (∼38 nm) consisting of three dimensionally interconnected into Pd arrays; for Pd@SBA-15 and Pd@MCM-41, the Pd metal forms of one-dimensional wires. Etching out the matrix produces porous Pd cages (pore sizes of ∼1.5–2.0 nm) with retaining original domain sizes of ∼38 nm; similarly Pd@SBA-15 and Pd@MCM-41 afford freestanding Pd nanowires. All the materials are examined by TEM, XRD, BET, and EDAX analysis. Furthermore, the thermal behavior of Pd nanowire is briefly described.

The cubic MCM-48 and hexagonal SBA-15 hosts were prepared by a literature method. See: D. Zhao, J. Feng, Q. Huo, N. Melosh, G. H. Fredrickson, B. F. Chmelka and G. D. Stucky, Science, 279, 548 (1998).
Pd(hfac)2 was synthesized following a literature method. See: A. R. Siedle, R. A. Newmark, A. A. Kruger, L. H. Pignolet, Inorg. Chem., 20, 3399 (1981).
Pd(hfac)2 is known to adsorb readily on silica surfaces by means of strong Lewis acid-base interactions between the Pd center and surface hydroxyl groups. See: A. R. Siedle and R. A. Newmark, J. Am. Chem. Soc., 103, 1240 (1981).
