A density functional theory study of the interaction of a Pd atom with the zeolitic Bronsted acid site is reported. Whereas reduction of Pd2+ to Pd-0 and 2H(+) is strongly exothermic, the energy of exchange of a single proton between Pd-0 and the zeolite is found to be nearly thermodynamically neutral. Reaction energy diagrams are presented for proton-assisted CO hydrogenation and hydration
