Water-soluble dendritic ligands based on tris-2-(5-sulfonato salicylaldimine ethyl)amine () and DAB-(5-sulfonato salicylaldimine) () (DAB = diaminobutane) were synthesized by means of Schiff base condensation and sulfonation reactions. These dendritic ligands were fully characterized by (1)H NMR, (13)C NMR and FT-IR spectroscopy, elemental analysis and mass spectrometry. Dendritic ligands ( and ) in combination with [RhCl(COD)](2) (COD = 1,5-cyclooctadiene) were evaluated in aqueous biphasic hydroformylation of 1-octene. New water-soluble mononuclear 5-sulfonato propylsalicylaldimine Rh(i) complexes ( and ) were synthesized and characterized using (1)H NMR, (13)C NMR and FT-IR spectroscopy, elemental analysis as well as mass spectrometry. These complexes were applied as catalyst precursors in aqueous biphasic hydroformylation reactions. All the catalyst precursors were active in the hydroformylation of 1-octene under the investigated conditions. Optimal conditions were realized at 75 °C (40 bars), where the best selectivity for aldehydes was noticed. Catalyst recycling was achieved up to 5 times with minimal loss in conversion and consistent chemoselectivities and regioselectivities. Less Rh leaching was observed in the dendritic systems ( and )/[RhCl(COD)](2) as compared to mononuclear catalyst precursors ( and ) as determined by inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry (ICP-MS).
