The synthesis, characterization and catalytic properties of an ionic liquid supported Pd (0.3 wt.%) catalyst (NB4MPy+BF- 4Pd (acac)/active charcoal) are discussed. The oxidation state of Pd in a fresh, reduced catalyst was corresponding to PdIV, whereas after three-phase citral hydrogenation it was close to PdII. Obtained results, including negligible Pd leaching, demonstrated the feasibility of stable ionic liquid supported Pd catalysts preparation, which can be applied in liquid phase hydrogenation reactions.
