Title: Well-Defined Rhodium–Gallium Catalytic Sites in a Metal–Organic Framework: Promoter-Controlled Selectivity in Alkyne Semihydrogenation to E-Alkenes [Well-Defined Rh–Ga Catalytic Sites in a Metal–Organic Framework: Promoter-Controlled Selectivity in Alkyne Semihydrogenation to E-Alkenes]

Abstract

Promoters are ubiquitous in industrial heterogeneous catalysts. The wider roles of promoters in accelerating catalysis and/or controlling selectivity are, however, not well understood. A model system has been developed where a heterobimetallic active site comprising an active metal (Rh) and a promoter metal (Ga) are preassembled and delivered into a metal-organic framework (MOF) support. The Rh-Ga sites in the MOF selectively catalyze the hydrogenation of acyclic alkynes to E-alkenes, which is complementary to Lindlar’s catalyst, which generates only Z-alkenes. The role of the Ga in promoting this unusual selectivity is underscored by the lack of semi-hydrogenation selectivity when Ga is absent and only Rh is present in the active site. We acknowledge Dr. Camille Malonzo May (UMN), Dr. David Kaphan (Argonne), Dr. Tata Gopinath (UMN), and Dr. Zhanyong Li (NW) for experimental assistance, and Dr. Dale Pahls for preliminary theoretical calculations.
