An silica supported chitosan-Schiff base Pd(II) catalyst was prepared in a simple way and characterized by XRD, FT-IR, SEM-EDS, XPS and TG, and the ability of this complex to catalyze hydrogenolysis of 1-tetralone into 1,2,3,4-tetrahydronaphthalene was also investigated in the presence of hydrogen. It has been revealed that the catalyst had high catalytic activity for hydrogenolysis of 1-tetralone at ambient temperature and normal pressure of hydrogen. Especially, the hydrogenolysis of 1-tetralone in ethanol solvent gave excellent results and the 100% conversion of 1-tetralone and the 100% selectivity for 1,2,3,4-tetrahydronaphthalene were obtained under optimized reaction conditions. The influences of reaction temperature, reaction time and solvent on the hydrogenolysis of 1-tetralone were also investigated. It has been also revealed that the catalyst was efficient and eco-friendly for the hydrogenolysis of carbonyl that connected with a benzene ring to give corresponding aromatic hydrocarbons.
