Although in many cases it will not be necessary, the assembly of molecular models can prove extremely valuable in studying certain types of catalytic hydrogenations. They may, for example, help in understanding problems of selectivity when more than one reducible group is present, and they can also show whether poisoning by certain atoms will occur, offering a possibility of overcoming this by the use of more vigorous conditions or of more catalyst.
