Abstract

Nanostructured palladium catalysts are used industrially for selective alkyne hydrogenation reactions. However, structural changes can lead to a loss of performance. In this study, we show the evolution of the atomic structure of monodispersed Pd nanoclusters undergoing a vapour-phase 1-pentyne hydr...
