The purpose of this research was to study the homogeneous catalytic hydrogenation of α,β-unsaturated organic compounds containing a wide variety of reducible functional groups. The catalysts to be used were rhodium complexes of triarylphosphines. It was also desired to develop these catalytic systems into practical synthetic methods for the reduction of unsaturated compounds.
