A manganese-based metal-organic framework with dipyrazole ligands has been metalated with atomically dispersed Rh and Co species and used as a catalyst for the hydroformylation of styrene. The Rh-based materials exhibited excellent conversion at 80 °C with complete chemoselectivity, high selectivity for the branched aldehyde, high recyclability, and negligible metal leaching.
