Catalytic hydrogenation of aromatic compounds is an important reaction which is useful for making key intermediates in organic chemistry and for the production of aromaticcontent-free fuels. More recently, there has been much interest in the potential for storage of molecular hydrogen, as an energy source, by catalytic hydrogenation of carboneous materials… CONTINUE READING
