A green chemistry approach has been furnished for photochemical deposition of α-MnO2 nanorods onto the surface of functionalized polystyrene beads through immobilization of MnO+4- in alkaline condition under visible light. Then the composite material was exploited as a fruitful and novel solid-phase catalyst for the one-step and facile synthesis of amide compounds from nitriles under visible light in weakly basic medium.
