Polystyrene supported Rh(I) AA′ (AA′ = anthranilic acid, 2,2′-bipyridine or 1,10-phenanthroline) complexes catalyse the hydrogenation of monoolefins (terminal, cyclic and internal) and dienes. Ethyl sorbate undergoes saturation via the monoene intermediate. Thiscis olefin reacts faster than thetrans isomer. The rate law for the reaction is: Rate α [catalyst] [substrate] [H2].
