Hi Jim,


I have done gram to kilogram-scale hydrogenation reactions at ambient to high pressure. We also published an article on laboratory scale hydrogenations in the Journal of Chemical Health and Safety. See the link below:


Understanding the properties of hydrogen, catalysts, their manipulations, and hands-on experience is critical for successful hydrogenation at both small and large scales. I will be happy to discuss my experience with hydrogenation reactions if needed. 


Best regards,

Subject: [DCHAS-L] Best Practices Question


A colleague asked me to gather your thoughts about the following inquiry.


Do you know, or do you know of someone/group I could talk to concerning industry best practices about hydrogenation/open access hydrogenation/methanol/filtration, etc.? We would like to see if there are some practices out there that we haven't considered.

Regards ... Jim
