Abstract :

The article reports a molecular dual-catalyst system for production of linear aldehydes via regioselective carbonylation of n-alkanes. The system is comprised of a pincer iridium catalyst for transfer-dehydrogenation of the alkane using t-butylethylene or ethylene as a hydrogen acceptor working sequentially with a rhodium catalyst for olefin isomerization-hydroformylation with syngas. Finally, the Ir/Rh dual-catalyst strategy is successfully applied to regioselective alkane aminomethylation to form linear alkyl amines.
