New heterogenized Pt/Sn catalysts selective for the hydroformylation of 1-pentene have been synthesized. The complex cis-[PtCl2(PPh3)2] and the SnCl2.2H2O or SnC2O4 precursors have been anchored on silica-, magnesia- and alumina-carriers. X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy was used to determine the surface composition and the nature of the anchored species. The hydroformylation activity was found to depend on the type of support and tin precursor used. Only the silica supported catalysts were active in the hydroformylation reaction. Samples prepared from SnCl2-2H2O were 200-fold more active than those prepared from SnC2O4. Selectivity ton-hexanal of the silica-supported catalyst prepared from SnCl2-2H2O was as high as 94.4% at 39.2% conversion of 1-pentene.
