We will introduce functionalized groups in phosphine and carboxylate ligands. The obtained compounds will be used as coordinating ligands in homogeneous transition metal catalysis. We will synthesise the following ligands: 1) phosphines with ambiphilic groups: their surfactants properties will probably change the catalytic activity in biphasic systems; 2) phosphines with polar groups of different charge (zwitterions): we will obtain asymmetric water-soluble phosphines very selective in catalytic systems with polar substrates; 3) functionalized carboxylates: with surfactants properties, water-soluble or coordinating capacity.
