The phase structure of 7%Pd-3%Cu on activated carbon catalysts was studied by potentiodynamic polarization and XRD methods. Unalloyed Pd, Pd-rich disordered alloy, unalloyed Cu and Cu3Pd phases and adsorbed Cu have been detected, depending on the preparation methods. Activity in hydrogenation reactions was attributed to the Pd-rich disordered alloy phase.
