If one would like to hydrogenate at atmospheric pressure, when high pressure is called for, use a "vibro-mixer" instead of the old technology of Parr shakers or improvised paint can mixers.
Oh! What the hell is a "vibro-mixer"? Don't know where to get one? Improvise my friends.
Mine was fashioned from a vibratory case cleaner used by shooters to clean their cartridge brass. Just remove the plastic tub from the unit and replace with your rxn. vessel. Guaranteed to work like a charm to hydrogenate your favorite vegetable oil to powerful bee pollen precursor. It may not work best at just 1 atm., but a few extra pounds of hydrogen will probably work rather then 50+ called for in many reactions. Why play with high pressure if you don't have to?

It is gass diffusion law. When pressure increases so will sollubility of said gas. Why do you want to increase Hydrogen in the first place is what I whant to know? I think it must be speeding things up, forcing the gass spectrum of this rxn foreward a bit. Is possible this is going to be a driving off of the oxygen as quickly as possible making the Rxn I suppose more or less oxygenless? Oxymorons run for the anode and hydrogens to cathode. This in turn exposes the carbon?
