On Water Hydroformylation

Dieter Vogt and co-workers have shown that using water as co-solvent in rhodium-catalysed aldehyde hydrogenation under hydroformylation conditions enhances both rate and selectivity towards primary alcohols. Find out more about this cheap and cheerful advance in their recent Hot Article:
