Hydroformylation of piperylene and efficient catalyst recycling in propylene carbonate

Author affiliations

Abstract

In contrast to monoolefins, diene hydroformylation is still a demanding task. Some dienes like butadiene and isoprene have been investigated more intensively, however, 1,3-pentadiene (piperylene) has been rarely investigated. Here, we present a systematic investigation of the hydroformylation of piperylene, using Rh(CO)2acac/Xantphos as an active catalyst which can be easily recycled in the green solvent propylene carbonate. Under the chosen conditions aldehyde yields of up to 82% have been obtained, while catalyst recycling was possible for up to six runs.
