Homework Help: Transfer Hydrogenation of Olive oil by Cyclohexene

  1. Oct 13, 2009 #1
    Hi, I was just wondering. In the reaction formula I have olive oil with 3 double bonds and cyclohexene can only hydrogenate 2. How do I hydrogenate all three?

    Use more cyclohexene than triolein? (on a per mole basis)
