The composition and deactivation effect of green oil on a Pd/A1203 catalyst (ICI 38-1) in the hydrogenation of a tail-end acetylene-ethylene mixture are discussed. Infrared and NMR measurements confirmed the presence of carboxylic acids in the oil. The green oil poisoned the acetylene hydrogenation sites but the product distribution pattern was not greatly affected.
