The product distributions from reactions of 3-methylnortricyclene with hydrogen over palladium or platinum catalysts supported on silica or pumice vary significantly after treatment of the catalyst with small amounts of halogen-containing compounds. Evidence is presented, including deuterium distribution studies utilizing 2H n.m.r., that these changes in products are associated with intermediates which have greater sp2 character at the reacting carbon atoms and that the formation of intermediates is not simply associated with an increase in catalyst acidity.
