Polyol synthesis of palladium hydride: bulk powders vs. nanocrystals.

Abstract

Palladium is converted into palladium hydride, beta-PdH(x), in polyol solution using NaBH(4) as a hydrogen source; nanocrystalline Pd reacts to form PdH(x) faster and at lower temperatures than bulk Pd, and can be made to release hydrogen to regenerate Pd.
