Abstract The addition of tin to palladium-alumina catalysts induces significant modifications of the catalytic properties of palladium in the hydrogenation of hexa-1,5-diene. The influence of the support, of the metal loading and of the preparation method on the chemical state of tin in Pd-Sn/Al2O3 catalysts are studied by Mössbauer spectroscopy. In reduced catalysts, about 60% of tin is present as Sn(0), which forms different Pd-Sn compounds, that are responsible for the changes in the catalytic performances.
