Using different reduction conditions Pd powders have been prepared and characterized by chemisorption and TPO (Temperature Programmed Oxidation) measurements. The amount of carbon deposits introduced during preparation seems to be peculiar to the preparation procedure. The O2 consumption curves attributed to PdO formation have shown two peak minima suggesting strong differences in the accessibility of Pd particles.
