Almost complete conversion of dilute aqueous ammonia (1.5 g-NH<SUB>3</SUB> dm<SUP>−3</SUP>) to dinitrogen has been attained over a hydrogen-treated active carbon supported (3 wt%) Pd catalyst under a rather mild condition (2.0 MPa of air, 453 K). The hydrophobicity of the support surface is considered to be important to provide high activity and selectivity in Pd catalysis.
