Ligand-metal cooperation: A new ligand-metal cooperating catalyst for the hydroformylation of olefins is described (see scheme). The mechanism of the H2 activation and C-H bond formation of the catalyst involves an intramolecular cooperation between the structurally remote functionality and the metal center and proceeds without change of the oxidation state of the metal.
