Abstract

The trans-effect in co-ordination chemistry is well known; however, what has not been examined in any detail is the effect of trans-molecules in heterogeneous catalytic hydrogenation. In this paper we will show that "trans" molecules hydrogenate more slowly than other isomers and can poison reactions of species that Would be expected to be more strongly bound. However, if a cis/trans-mixture is used this strong adsorption can be disrupted.
