Question

Wilkinson’s catalyst is used for
  1. Hydrogenation of oils
  2. Hydrogenation of alkynes
  3. Polymerisation of alkenes
  4. Hydrogenation of alkenes


Solution

The correct option is D Hydrogenation of alkenes
Wilkinson's catalyst is  [RhCl(PPh3)3]. Wilkinson's catalyst is used for the conversion of alkenes to alkanes. 

The mechanism of this reaction involves the initial dissociation of one or two triphenylphosphine ligands to give 14- or 12-electron complexes, respectively, followed by oxidative addition of H2 to the metal.
