It is found that the addition of Mo to Rh/SiO2 (Mo-Rh/SiO 2) promoted alcohol formation in hydroformylation of propylene and ethylene, at the same time it drastically enhanced the activity of hydroformylation and hydrogenation. It is suggested that H2 adsorption sites, which are not inhibited by CO adsorption, are present on Mo-Rh/SiO2. The sites can cause high H2 activation, and it can be related to the additive effect of Mo in hydroformylation reactions.
