Applications

As a catalyst in oxo process, and in high-purity cobalt saltsOctacarbonyldicobalt is used as a catalyst for hydroformylation. It plays an important role in promoting both the Nicholas reaction and the Pauson-Khand reaction. It acts as a reagent and catalyst in organometallic chemistry and organic synthesis. It is involved as an alkyne protecting group.

Notes

Air sensitive. Store in a cool place. Keep the container tightly closed in a dry and well-ventilated place. Incompatible with strong oxidizing agents.
