rhodium species as catalysts for liquid phase
hydroformylation of 1-hexene in order to study the effects of zeolite immobilization. NaX zeolite was cation exchanged with several rhodium salts and used as hydroformylation catalysts at 50°C and l25°C in the presence of: triphenylphosphine (PPh3), dimethylphenylphosphine (PMe2Ph),
and the poison for zeolite surface and solution rhodium: triphenylmethylmercaptan (Ph3CSH). The results of these experiments were compared with those of several homogeneous catalysts under similar conditions.
