Paper Title:
Bimetallic PdZn Nanoparticles for the Partial Hydrogenation of Phenylacetylene
  Abstract

Novel catalytic systems based on PdZn alloys have been synthesized by polyol reduction over the entire compositional range [1, 2] and characterized by means of HRTEM, EDS and ICP. The expected bulk compositions were reproducible to within a 2 mol% margin and the purified particle suspensions stable for several months after preparation. The EDS results indicated the presence of considerable amounts of oxygen, especially in those samples containing high fractions of zinc. The particle size distributions were shown to be narrow and the mean sizes slightly decreased with higher molar fractions of palladium (diameter range 2.6 to 3.2 nm). In the catalytic hydrogenation of phenylacetylene, a strong dependence of the substrate conversion time on the Pd concentration was established, and selectivity towards the semihydrogenation product (styrene) was found to be close to 100 %. The selectivity dropped only shortly before the initial substrate was fully depleted.
