The Stereochemistry of Organometallic Compounds. XXXVIII. Regio- and Stereo-control in the Rhodium-Catalyzed Hydroformylation of Some Alkenyl Phosphites Academic Article uri icon


  • Excellent regiocontrol is achieved in the rhodium-catalysed hydroformylation of some alkenyl phosphites, and good stereocontrol is obtained in the hydroformylation of some cyclohexenyl phosphites. The stereochemical results have implications for the mechanism of these rhodium-catalysed reactions.
