Dicobalt octacarbonyl catalyzes the formation of acylcobalt tetracarbonyls and paraffins from olefins and cobalt tetracarbonyl hydride, presumably by generating radical species. The relativereactivities of CO and HCo(CO)4 towards an alkylcobalt carbonyl determine the carbonylation/hydrogenation ratio.
