The present state of art on the application of carbene-rhodium complexes as stable catalysts for hydroformylation reaction is described. A critical analysis of the influence of pressure and temperature on the hydroformylation of non-modified rhodium complexes and those ones described in the presence of carbenes is also done. Finally, a set of experiments using NHCs prepared by us at different reactions conditions is presented and discussed.
