A series of N, P-ligands bearing carboxyl groups have been synthesized. These have been applied in
conjunction with cobalt naphthenate in a facile, economic, and efficient method for the catalytic hydrosilylation
of alkenes. In the presence of KOtBu as an additive, the reaction time and activation energy are greatly reduced.
Keywords: Cobalt complex, N, P-Ligands, hydrosilylation, alkene, KOtBu, facile.
