Studies on Formation of First Neutral Mononuclear Rh (II) Complex of 1, 10-Phenanthroline, Catalytic Hydroformylation and Antimicrobial Activity

Author(s): D. Karunakar, S. Kavitha and M. Ashok

A study of rhodium (II) catalyzed hydroformylation of olefins and also formation of mononuclear complexes with 1,10-phenonthraline with polar phosphines to form unexpectedly neutral mononuclear Rh(II) complexes was carried out. The synthesized compounds [RhCl3(1,10-phenonthralone(II)] and [Rh(II)Cl2(1,10-phen)2] tested for their antimicrobial activity.
