Porous organic polymers as heterogeneous ligands for highly selective hydroacylation†
A porous organic polymer (POL-dppe) was synthesized and employed as a heterogeneous ligand for selective hydroacylation of alkynes. The polymer shows high linear selectivity and catalytic efficiency toward a broad range of alkynes and β-S substituted aldehydes. Owing to the confinement effect of the microporous structure, POL-dppe was far superior to the monomeric dppe ligand in controlling the selectivity of electron-deficient alkynes. The use of a porous organic polymer as a regioselective and efficient ligand in hydroacylation is reported for the first time.
