The concept of supported ionic liquid-phase (SILP) catalysis has been demonstrated for gas- and liquid-phase continuous fixed-bed reactions using rhodium phosphine catalyzed hydroformylation of propene and 1-octene as examples. The nature of the support had important influence on both the catalytic performance, i.e. activity and selectivity, as well as stability of the SILP catalysts. Noticeably, a high catalyst ligand content together with presence of ionic liquid solvent are prerequisites for obtaining selective rhodium phosphine SILP catalysts systems.
