The swelling degree of ion-exchange resin AB-17-8-OH and palladium-containing catalysts based on this resin were studied. The effects of the diameter of polymeric support grains and temperature on the activity of the catalysts in model reactions of nitrobenzene and α-nitronaphthalene hydrogenation were investigated. It was found that the catalyst preparation procedure and the particle size appreciably affect the rates of these reactions.
