Introduction to Heterogeneous Hydrogenation and Its Application in the Fine Chemicals Industry
2016 (English)In: Hydrogenation With Low-Cost Transition Metals, CRC PRESS-TAYLOR & FRANCIS GROUP , 2016, 1-35 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)Text
Catalytic hydrogenations are usually carried out with heterogeneous catalysts using molecular hydrogen as a reducing agent. This is an atom economic transformation and undoubtedly the cleanest hydrogenation method. Alternatively, hydrogen donors such as isopropanol or formic acid can be applied in transfer hydrogenations. This chapter aims to highlight some scientific developments and industrial applications of heterogeneous hydrogenation catalysts.
