      pd/c vs pd black for hydrogenation of 14-hydrox...  Bookmark   

Posted this in the newbee forum but rarely get replies to opiate related questions there.  Probably belongs here anyway...

My dawg Fido wants to make some oxycodone from the 14-hydroxycodeinone he found.  Fido has pd black and likes it cause it is easy to make and the precursor is easy to order since Fido thinks he is a photographer.  Fido could order pd/c but always like to keep chemical purchases to a minimum.  In this process, can pd black be substituted for pd/c?  Fido trying to make big leap of doggy logic here.  Is the difference simply in the surface area available on the catalyst?  That is the pd on the c is applied very thin hence you get more surface area per gr of pd?

The type of Pd you are using is usual not important, it's only the purity of the Pd whitch counts
