Catalytic Hydrogenation of Maleic Acid at Moderate Pressures: A Laboratory Demonstration
Amoa, Kwesi
Journal of Chemical Education, v84 n12 p1948-1950 Dec 2007
Moderate-pressure catalytic hydrogenation is often overlooked as a classroom demonstration because of the awkwardness of the equipment and the time constraints required for the conversion of reactants to products. This article demonstrates the reduction of maleic acid in about 90 minutes. (Contains 1 table and 1 figure.)
