Adding benzoic acid and aniline as cocatalysts to the Rh 1/2 -amino-3-picoline catalyzed hydroacylation of alkenes with aldehydes to give ketones results in a remarkable improvement in yield and activity [for example, Eq. (1)]. This is one of the few examples of a successful intermolecular hydroacylation reaction.
