1. The hydrogenation of fats is accompanied by the migration of double bonds in the fatty-acid radicals, mainly by one place in the direction of the methyl or the carboxyl group. In dienic acids, the double bonds migrate mainly towards one another, with the formation of conjugated systems.

2. The migration of the double bonds takes place by two different mechanisms based on the principles of the multiplet theory of heterogeneous catalysis.
