Our newest Cover Feature shows a colloidal palladium nanoparticle catalyst for the selective hydrogenation of liquid alkynes from Lena's ChemCatChem publication.

This paper shows that the reactivity of colloidal palladium nanoparticles can be tuned by addition of phosphanes. The size and the electronic properties of the phosphanes influence the particle surface and determine both the product selectivity and the catalytic activity.
