For example, we recently synthesized the first thermally stable gold(III) hydrides, gold peroxides (the first for gold in any oxidation state) and gold(III) alkene complexes (while platinum analogues of the latter have been known since 1827).
SBR exhibited similar performance to NBR with two notable differences; the solubility potentials for the two baseline fuels are similar and the solubility potentials for the alkene and two aromatics are significantly higher than the baseline fuels.

Regarding alkyne hydrogenation, the major aim is to avoid hydrogenation to single bond and in the case of non-terminal alkynes is to give superiority to the extreme conversion and selectivity to the (Z)- alkene [3-5].
In addition, the student used alkene, the low-price and eco-friendly substance, as a prefix substance for interaction rather than the epoxide expensive substance, which is typically used to prepare Cyclic Carbonate through a nano-meter industrial catalytic.
