Exploring small bite-angle PNP and PCP ligands for the rhodium-catalysed intermolecular hydroacylation of b-s-substituted aldehydes with alkenes and alkynes

Abstract:

This thesis discusses the intermolecular hydroacylation reaction using cationic rhodium bis- phosphine complexes as catalysts. A series of small bite-angle rhodium bis-phosphine complexes have been prepared and characterised. The reactivity of these complexes has been investigated in order to gather information about the effect of subtle changes in the ligand design and they are compared to the previously reported catalysts.

Chapter 2 presents the challenges involved in the synth...
