A palladium catalyst highly active for the cyclohexene hydrogenation has been obtained by heterogenisation of [PdCl2(NH2(CH2)12CH3)2] on zeolite NH4ZSM-5. TOF is more than twenty times higher than for the homogeneous catalyst or the activated carbon heterogenised complex. Changes in the electronic state of palladium have been observed by XPS analysis. Palladium reduction is produced upon heterogenisation on the NH4ZSM-5 zeolite.
