Controlling selectivity in the rhodium-catalysed intermolecular hydroacylation reaction

Abstract:

This thesis explores the area of the intermolecular hydroacylation reaction, catalysed by rhodium diphosphine complexes. A range of latent low-coordinate rhodium diphosphine complexes have been synthesised, and their catalytic activity for the hydroacylation reaction has been investigated. In particular, emphasis has been placed on understanding how subtle changes in diphosphine steric properties affect, and can be used to control, selectivity of this catalysis.
