Abstract

First-principles calculations support the hypothesis that the appropriate spacing between Pd monomers controls the catalytic activity of Pd/Au catalysts in the vinyl acetate formation only if a vinyl surface species is involved in the rate-determining step of the reaction, opening new questions on these relevant catalytic systems.
