what is hydrogenation ?

Hi Vibhooor,
Hydrogenation in simple terms can be defined as addition of hydrogen. The following equation shows hydrogenation of ethene to ethane.
 
Hope, this answers your question.
Best wishes!

addition of hydrogen .it is done to make unsaturated hydrocarbon chain saturated.ex.animal fats are naturally saturated,but vegetable fats are unsaturated,dont exist in solid state under normal conditions,but  hydrogenation,helps here. but its bad for health for it block arteries and oxigen rich blood to circulate,this is cholestrol and do heart attacck.so use only mustard,sunflower,oil for cooking
