Iron-catalyzed hydrosilylation of CO2: CO2 conversion to formamides and methylamines†
Catalytic hydrosilylation of CO2 is an efficient and selective approach to form chemicals. Herein, we describe the first iron catalysts able to promote the reductive functionalization of CO2 using hydrosilanes as reductants. Iron(II) salts supported by phosphine donors enable the conversion of CO2 to formamide and methylamine derivatives under mild reaction conditions.
