No ligands needed: Rhodium complexes supported on HY zeolite catalyze the formation of CC bonds by a new mechanism involving cooperation between the metal species and Brønsted acid sites of the zeolite support (see picture). The catalyst operates in the absence of ligands such as halides and shows high selectivity to n-butenes, even in an excess of H2.
