Feasible photocatalysis: The rhodium catalyst [Rh(CO)(PMe3)2Cl] photochemically transforms ethane to propionaldehyde in single-phase mixtures of ethane and in carbon dioxide/ethane single phases [Eq. (1)]. A side reaction of carbon dioxide with the catalyst to give OPMe3 and [Rh(CO)2(PMe3)Cl] or [Rh2(CO)2-(PMe3)2(μ-Cl) 2] has also been observed.
