Polyvinyl pyrrolidone stabilized rhodium nanoparticles are highly soluble in hydroxyl-functionalized ionic liquids, providing an effective and highly stable catalytic system. In hydrogenation reactions, excellent results were obtained, and transmission electron microscopy, solubility determinations, and leaching experiments were employed to quantify the advantages of this catalytic system.
