Well-dispersed Pd nanoparticles were synthesized by microwave-assisted solvothermal technique using methanol and ethanol. Particle size and morphology were controlled mainly by the reaction temperature. Particle size of Pd nanoparticles was controlled in the range of 2 to 11 nm by manipulating the reaction conditions. The Pd nanoparticles were characterized by transmission electron microscopy for particle size and shape and UV-Vis spectroscopy for optical properties. UV-Vis spectra showed that synthesized Pd nanoparticles stabilized with PVP had absorption bands at around 280 to 290 nm.
