Flex that backbone! An SBA-15-supported rhodium–N-heterocyclic carbene (NHC) catalytic complex shows good activity and stability in hydrogenation reactions. Compared to conventional immobilized unsaturated NHC carbene complexes, Rh-NHC is connected to the SBA-15 surface by a linker originating from the backbone of the unsaturated NHC ligand. The catalyst structure maintains two unchanged “wing-tip” ligands on the supported NHC.
