Syngas-Mediated C-C Bond Formation in Flow: Selective Rhodium-Catalysed Hydroformylation of Styrenes
07 October 2011 (eFirst)
We report a continuous flow, rhodium-catalysed hydroformylation of various styrenes using a tube-in-tube gas-liquid reactor. The flow process afforded selectively branched aryl aldehydes in good yields.
