(+)-R-Limonene and (-)-R-carvone undergo hydroformylation in the presence of catalytic Pt-bisphosphine-SnCl2 systems to yield exclusively the linear products. The internal double bond and the carbonyl group remain intact in both substrates during the reaction. The variation of the diastereomeric composition of the aldehydes upon variation of the chelating phosphine in the catalyst has been investigated.
