Unformatted text preview: Questions 1. Saturating Olive Oil causes solidification. Therefore, we can test if our reaction was successful by cooling the olive oil below room temperature and see if it solidifies. If it does, our reaction was successful. 2. Ammonium formate (HCOO- NH4+) can also be used as a hydrogen source in a transfer hydrogenation, giving up one equivalent of hydrogen. Write a balanced equation showing the hydrogenation of 1-butene with ammonium formate in the presence of a Pd/C catalyst. NH 4 CO 2 H/(Pd/C) NH 3 (g) + CO 2 (g) + H 2 (g) so CH 3 CH 2 CH=CH 2 (g) + NHCO 2 H/(Pd/C) NH 3 (g) + CO 2 (g) + CH 3 CH 2 CH 2 CH 3 (g)...
