The Hydrogenation Reaction, Hydrogenation In The Research Laboratory, Hydrogenation In Industry, Biological Hydrogenation

Hydrogenation is a chemical reaction in which hydrogen atoms add to carbon-carbon multiple bonds. In order for the reaction to proceed at a practical rate, a catalyst is almost always needed. Hydrogenation reactions are used in many industrial processes as well as in the research laboratory, and occur also in living systems. We will look at a few examples in each category in this article.
