On the pattern of hydrogenolysis of hexane isomers over four Group VIIIB metals

  • Z. Paál
  • P. Tétényi


The hydrogenolysis patterns of five hexane isomers have been compared over Rh, Pd, Ir and Pt. The selectivity of rupture of various C−C bond types is different for various metals. The “fingerprint-like” patterns are, as a rule, similar to those reported in the literature, their correlation with the position of the metal in the periodic system is pointed out.

Отмечается их корреляция с положением данного металла в периодической системе.
