The palladium chloride-dimethyl sulfoxide complex catalyzes the reaction of hydrogen with oxygen at 20°, but it is deactivated by the dimethyl sulfide that is formed in parallel as a contaminant.
The ratio in the rates of the principal and secondary reactions is determined by the partial hydrogen pressure in the mixture.
