    Abstract

    Size matters: The adsorption of trans-2-pentene on Pd/Al2O3 model catalysts exhibits site-specific behavior, which results in a strong increase in hydrogenation activity within the 1-5-nm particle size range, in contrast to ethene hydrogenation (see figure). The size effects are explained by the reactions proceeding via di--bonded pentene, which is favored on the terrace sites of large particles, and -bonded ethene.
