Abstract

The combination of gold (Au 0) and tricobalt tetraoxide (CO 3O 4) prepared by coprecipitation gives high-performance heterogeneous catalysts for hydroformylation reaction with selectivity above 85% in desired aldehydes, although neither Au 0 nor CO 3O 4 have been demonstrated in this reaction and show poor activities. The A11/CO 3O 4 catalysts can be recycled by simple decantation with slight decrease in catalytic activity along with recycle times. The role of Au may mainly promote in situ reduction of CO 3O 4 to Co 0 catalyzing the hydroformylation reaction.
