Acrylonitrile can be selectively hydrogenated into propionitrile at about 400 K over a ceramic-supported Ni catalyst. At low surface coverages, the observed rates of hydrogenation are proportional to the first powers of the partial pressures of both acrylonitrile and dihydrogen, in agreement with Langmuir-Hinshelwood kinetics.
