A microgel from [2-(Methacryloyloxy)ethyl]trimethylammonium chloride ([MTMA]Cl) as p(MTMA) was synthesized by inverse suspension polymerization technique and used as template for in situ Co, Ni, and Cu metal nanoparticles preparation. The corresponding metal salts were loaded into p(MTMA) microgels from their corresponding metal salt solution in ethanol, then these metal salt loaded p(MTMA) microgels were treated with NaBH4 in order to obtain p(MTMA)-M (M: Co, Ni, and Cu) composites. The characterizations of p(MTMA) microgels were carried out via FT-IR, TGA, SEM, optical microscope, and zeta potential measurements. Finally, the prepared p(MTMA-M composites were used as catalyst in hydrogen generation from the hydrolysis of NaBH4 and in the reduction of nitro compounds. There are various parameters affecting the catalytic performances of p(MTMA)-M in H2 production from the hydrolysis reaction such as, the type of metal nanoparticles, their amounts and reaction temperature were investigated. Also, aromatic nitro compound such as 4-nitrophenol (4-NP), 2-nitrophenol (2-NP) reductions by p(MTMA)-M composites were investigated.
