The chemical process accompanying the hydrogenation of fats I. Geometrical isomerization

  • A. I. Glushenkova

1. It has been shown for numerous examples that the catalytic hydrogenation of fats is accompanied by the cis-trans isomerization of the radicals of the unsaturated acids.

2. A scheme is proposed which explains the mechanism of the isomerization through a process of the hydrogenation-dehydrogenation of the olefinic compounds.
