3] [38], Catalysts made up of titanocenes and methyl benzoate or nanometric NaH have been used for polymer hydrogenation [39^41], and mixtures of substituted and unsubstituted bis (cyclopentadienyl) nickel or cobalt and organolithium reagents have been used for the hydrogenation of conjugated dienes [42-45].
An important aspect of the polymer hydrogenation process is the interaction between the organometallic compound and hydrogen.
Its R&D 100 award winning H-Cube(R) continuous-flow hydrogenation reactor and the pilot plant scale version H-Cube Midi(TM) are used in hundreds of laboratories in four continents and have become the new industry standard for hydrogenation.
Enabling Asymmetric Hydrogenation For The Design Of Efficient Synthesis Of Drug Substances
Among these polyols, glycerol (n = 1) and sorbitol (n = 4) are already available cheaply and in pure form as either the by-product of bio-diesel production or by the hydrogenation of corn sugar, respectively.
The reaction in Figure 2 is initiated by acid catalyzed loss of water from glycerol to give the highly reactive 3-hydroxy-propionaldehyde intermediate, which then requires a rapid hydrogenation of the carbonyl group to yield the desired 1,3-propanediol.

In 45 clearly structured chapters, the book includes all hydrogenation reactions catalyzed by soluble transition metal-based catalysts.
Catalytic hydrogenation is one of the cleanest chemical transformations; however its safe handling has so far required expensive and special dedicated facilities.
Laszlo Urge, CEO of International Operations said: "These new products will widen the application area of the H-Cube(TM) hydrogenation reactor significantly.
The initial reaction was the hydrogenation of [alpha]-phenylacrylic acid using a rhodium catalyst containing (-)-methylpropylphenylphosphine (69% ee) to give (+)-hydratropic acid in 15% ee.
