Palladium (Pd) nanoparticles were synthesized using protein rich soybean leaf extract based biological process. Reduction of palladium ions by soybean leaf extract was examined by UV-visible spectroscopic technique. It was believed that the proteins and some of the amino acids that are exist in soybean leaf extracts were actively involved in the reduction of palladium ions. Further it was confirmed by Fourier transformations infrared spectroscopic (FTIR) analysis. These amino acids are not only involving in the reduction of palladium ions but also acting as surfactants that inhibits the rapid agglomeration. The phase purity of the synthesized palladium nanoparticles was investigated through X-ay Diffraction (XRD) analysis and the obtained pattern was compared with JCPDS data. Transmission electron microscopic (TEM) images of the palladium particles were recorded and the particle size was found to be ~15 nm.
