The rational design of a selective alkyne hydrogenation catalyst has created the highest activity Pd catalyst that also has high selectivities (comparable to the best reported catalysts) while eliminating additives such as lead and soluble bases. The catalyst can be recycled, making it intriguing for the selective hydrogenation of alkynes.
