The money metal! Silver selectively catalyzes the hydrogenation of propyne to propene, and the activity is maximal over 4.5 nm nanoparticles. The rate of propene production correlates well with the density of B5 sites, which suggests that the latter are potential active centers in the reaction. The hydrogenation follows an associative scheme, featuring the activation of H2 directly on the propyne–silver-surface intermediates.
