dehydrogenationZoomA-Z

Subject - Organic Chemistry

During dehydrogenations, hydrogen is eliminated from organic compounds. For example, dehydrogenation of alkanes yields alkenes and primary or secondary alcohols give aldehydes or ketones, respectively.

Most dehydrogenations are are carried out with catalysts or with hydrogen acceptors. For example, hydrogen acceptors could be quinones, such as chloranil, which are reduced to hydroquinones during the reaction.
