The formation of monophosphine acyl intermediates explains why PPr(i)(3) and PBu(i)(3) generate aldehydes in alkene hydrocarbonylation reactions carried out in protic solvents, whilst PEt(3), for which the acyl complex contains two phosphines, produces alcohols.
In ethanol, hydrocarbonylation reactions of alkenes catalysed by triethylphosphine complexes of rhodium give alcohols as the products with low linear selectivity, whilst rhodium complexes of PPri3 or PBui3 give mainly aldehydes, again with low linear selectivity. Modelling the proposed acyl intermediates by studying [Rh(C(O)Me)(CO)m(L)4-m] (L = PPri3 or(More)
