More Information
Description
Dicobalt octacarbonyl is the organometallic compound with composition Co₂(CO)₈. This metal carbonyl is used as a reagent and catalyst in organometallic chemistry and organic synthesis, and is key to much known organocobalt chemistry. It is the precursor to a hydroformylation catalyst, cobalt tetracarbonyl hydride

As a catalyst in organic synthesis and organometallic chemistry, Cobalt Carbonyl is a versatile reagent. It is commonly used as a catalyst in the hydroformylation (oxo reaction) of alkenes. It can also be used as a catalyst in the carboxylation of alkenes into corresponding esters and acids. Cobalt Carbonyl is a key precursor in the preparation of cobalt sulfide, cobalt platinum, and cobalt selenide nanocrystals.
