The origin of chemoselectivity in the hydrocarbonylation of alkenes catalysed by trialkylphosphine complexes of rhodium

Author affiliations

Abstract

The formation of monophosphine acyl intermediates explains why PPri3 and PBui3 generate aldehydes in alkene hydrocarbonylation reactions carried out in protic solvents, whilst PEt3, for which the acyl complex contains two phosphines, produces alcohols.
