Abstract

An elegant method for the aqueous-phase hydroformylation of 1-octene with a water-soluble Rh catalyst and amphiphilic latex particles as phase-transfer agents has been developed (see scheme). In this way, substantial concentrations of the olefin in the aqueous catalyst-containing phase were reached, and thus reasonable turnover frequencies under mild reaction conditions could be achieved.
