Quinoline hydrodenitrogenation (HDN) was studied with Pd/Al2O3, Ta-Al2O3, Pd/Ta-Al2O3, and physical mixtures of Pd/Al2O3 & Ta-Al2O3 catalysts.  These Pd and Pd/Ta catalysts exhibit significantly greater aromatic fractions than industrial catalysts as well as high yields under mild conditions (275°C, 20 bar).
