A facile, eco-friendly, room-temperature method for rapid one-pot synthesis of Pd metallic nanoparticles has been developed based on the successive reduction of Pd(II) precursors with gallic acid in an aqueous environment. The morphology and surface analysis of the resulting Pd nanoparticles were confirmed by aberration corrected scanning transmission electron microscopy followed by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. The particle size of palladium nanoparticles was calculated as 16 nm. This
