Dispersed alloy-like Au-Ag-Pd nanoparticles with average diameters of 4.4 ± 1.5 nm have been prepared by laser irradiation of a mixture containing gold, silver, and palladium colloids. The catalytic activity of the nano-particles was subsequently investigated and they were found to be efficient catalysts for the Heck reaction.
