(hī'drō-jen-ā'shŭn, hī-droj'ĕ-nā-shŭn),
Addition of hydrogen to a compound, especially to an unsaturated fat or fatty acid; thus, soft fats or oils are solidified or "hardened."

Diimide generated in-situ by thermolysis of p-toluenesulfonyl hydrazide has shown to be an alternative to conventional catalytic hydrogenation routes [19, 20]; however, crosslinking problems are often encountered in this process, limiting the end-use properties of the resulting polymers [21].
The aim is to use the hydrogenation technology to both passivate the damage caused by the contamination and to stabilise these cells to eliminate their LID.
(iv) The concept of Pd-Ag complex formation and stability canbe used in the preparation of supported bimetallic catalyst for hydrogenation reactions to increase the metal dispersion as well as stability and life of the catalyst.
The nanoparticle formation and hydrogenation reactions were carried out in a modified Fischer-Porter bottle immersed in a silicone oil bath and connected to a hydrogen tank.
"There is a research effort world-wide to make chemical processes more sustainable and green by replacing the rare, expensive and potentially toxic elements used in hydrogenation, catalytic converters in cars, fuel cells for the efficient conversion of chemical energy into electricity, and silicone coatings, with abundant ions such as iron," U of T chemistry professor Robert Morris, principal investigator of the study, reported.
The Hydrogenation unit of Tabriz petrochemical plant that was built with the aim of providing feedstock for the plant's olefin unit not only will replace LPG as the feedstock but will reduce dependency on other petrochemical plants to meet its needs.
The preparation of chiral tetrahydroquinolines using 1r-catalysed asymmetric hydrogenation and their possible cytotoxic potential anti-cancer activity were reported.
Carbonaceous materials are widely used as catalyst supports in industrial reactions, especially for hydrogenation and hydrodechlorination processes [1-3].
To further affirm this inference, we have conducted an additional experiment, namely, tested another method of hydrogenation, by holding the sample in hot (125[degrees]C) glycerin.
