Pd nanoparticles generated on gel type ion-exchange resins under catalytic conditions show high activity, selectivity and durability in partial hydrogenation reactions under mild conditions, thus providing a green, low-cost option for fine-chemicals production. The application to the continuous-flow synthesis of the leaf alcohol fragrance cis-3-hexen-1-ol is demonstrated.
