Surface oxygen triggered size change of palladium nano-crystals impedes catalytic efficacy

Author affiliations

Abstract

Palladium nano-crystals increase in size during the initial recycling in Heck cross coupling reactions. We demonstrate that oxygen adsorbed on the surface of palladium nano-crystals plays a pivotal role in driving the ripening. This in turn is associated with a loss in catalytic activity.
