Hydrogenation of Alkynes with the Lindlar catalyst
Hydrogenation of Alkynes with Lindlar Catalyst: Experimental Procedure
Hydrogenation of alkynes with Lindlar catalyst is carried out similarly to the hydrogenation of alkenes with platinum or palladium. However, it is important that only one equivalent of H2 is being used. For this purpose, the required volume of hydrogen is calculated and only this amount is added from a calibrated flask to the reaction vessel.
