Pd (0) EnCat™ 30NP

Pd (0) EnCat™ 30NP catalyst incorporates palladium(0) nanoparticles within a porous polymer bead giving high selectivity with low levels of precious metal contamination in reduction reactions. Reaxa’s controlled manufacturing process produces regular palladium(0) nanoparticles stabilized by the polymer matrix of the EnCat™ beads, ensuring that the catalyst performance is extremely reproducible from batch to batch giving a highly selective and active hydrogenation catalyst.
Applications include: Hydrogenation and Transfer Hydrogenation, Dehalogenation, Aromatic Nitro Compounds, Debenzylation Reactions, Double Bond Reductions, Ketone and Aldehyde Reduction, Reductive Aminations.


  • Cleaner Products: Typically less than 10 ppm Pd in crude reaction products
  • Cleaner Waster Streams: Minimal metal losses in Pd EnCat™ processes
  • Fast and Efficient Processes: EnCat™ beads filter easily
  • No plant contamination: Metal remains trapped within the polymer bead
  • Improved Processes: High activity and selectivity in many types of reduction reactions
  • Process Intensification: EnCat™ can be used in batch and continuous flow process
