Hydrogenation of unsaturated organic compounds & polar functional groups using nickel, palladium or platinum as a catalyst is a well-established process. Nickel-based catalysts are favorable for such processes, as compared to noble metals (Palladium, Platinum, Ruthenium) since they are economical and abundantly available. So far, the Raney Nickel catalyst, a nickel-aluminum alloy in NaOH solution, […]
