Alkyne Reduction – Hydrogenation Reaction and Mechanism

Alkyne Reduction Hydrogenation Reaction and Mechanism Leah4sciAlkynes possess 2 pi bonds allowing for a full or partial reduction.

This video walks you through the conditions required for all 3 reduction products including complete hydrogenation as well as the partial reduction to a cis or trans alkene.

You’ll also learn the step by step mechanism for (radical) dissolving metal reduction.
