Cyclohexanone oxime is formed from nitrobenzene with 97% yield in a one-pot reaction catalysed by palladium and gold nanoparticles on carbon. The reaction is carried out under hydrogen at 60 8C and the overall transformation involves a multi-step catalysed mechanism from which intermediates and catalytically active species have been identified.
