There is a table in this article DOI: 10.1039/C3CP51619A that gives the differences. It looks like it is addition of promoter metals and size.

Subject: [DCHAS-L] Raney Nickel nomenclature


Trivia question... Does anyone know the significance of the numbers used by WR Grace to label the these four formulations of Raney Nickel?

W.R. Grace and Co. Raney¨

2800, slurry, in H2O, active catalyst (Aldrich)

2400, slurry, in H2O, active catalyst (Aldrich)

3202, slurry, in H2O, active catalyst (Aldrich)

4200, slurry, in H2O, active catalyst (Aldrich)


After a few hours researching to no avail, I am really curious,
