New results presented herein demonstrate a two-step pathway for the selective synthesis of well-defined and structurally uniform HY zeolite-supported Rh(CO)(H)x complexes under ambient conditions. Furthermore, the stability of these Rh(CO)(H)x species at elevated temperatures is addressed, as well as their reactivity, and catalytic performance for the hydrogenation of C2H4.
