Abstract

Stoichiometric hydroformylation and carbonylation of norbornene takes place in the presence of W(CO)3Cl2(AsPh3)2 and water or alcohol via initial formation of carbene and ketene type intermediates followed by nucleophilic addition of water or alcohol or a hydrido-metal species to the carbon- oxygen double bond of the ketene.
