In this paper graphitic carbon nitride (g-CN) was synthesized using urea as a precursor at temperature 550 0C in a muffle furnace. Palladium Nano-particles were introduced in the graphic carbon nitride matrix by fairly new chemical sol-gel process followed by filtering and drying. Material characterization such as X-Ray Diffraction (XRD), Scanning electron microscopy (SEM), Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and Energy-dispersive spectroscopy (EDS) were performed. XRD indicates the formation of polycrystalline material. SEM and TEM analysis indicate the uniform Palladium nanostructures impregnated g-CN matrix. EDS analysis justifies the presence of all the elements.
