Abstract

Exploring the alternatives: Ruthenium imidazoyl phosphine complexes catalyze the domino hydroformylation/reduction of alkenes to alcohols in good yields and with good selectivities (see scheme). Linear aliphatic alcohols are synthesized under reaction conditions typically used in industrial hydroformylations.
