Abstract

A series of mono- and multivalent phosphorus-based ligands was synthesised by the lower-rim benzylation of the water-soluble ligand, 1,3,5-triaza-7-phosphaadamantane (PTA). These ligands were used to prepare mono-, bi- and trinuclear Rh(I) complexes whose catalytic activity, product selectivity and recyclability were evaluated in the aqueous biphasic hydroformylation of 1-octene.
