This thesis deals with the continuing effort to chemically bind well defined homogeneous organometallic catalysts on the surface of the inert support and to study their behavior. The work has shown that a chelating bisphosphine ligand 2-3-triethoxysilylpropyl-1,3-bisdiphenylphosphinopropane can effectively support and immobilize an organometallic RhI hydrogenation catalyst on a silica surface. Through a series of tests, this bound hydrogenation catalyst behaves in a manner expected of an analog of homogeneous organometallic RhI catalysts and not like a metallic rhodium catalyst.
