A novel recyclable catalyst for chelation-assisted hydroacylation of an olefin with a primary alcohol was developed by utilizing a hydrogen-bonding self-assembly motif consisting of a barbiturate bearing 2-aminopyridin-4-yl group and 5-hexyl-2,4,6-triaminopyrimidine. This was further applied to a mixed catalyst system to recycle both organic and organometallic catalysts.
