Tetracarbonylhydrocobalt is a Lewis acid with a high affinity towards olefin Lewis bases. In the presence of carbon monoxide the cobalt/olefin (Òd/piÓ) complex reacts to give Tetracarbonylethylcobalt(I).This reaction can either be considered as H-Co adding across the olefin, or as the olefin inserting into the H-Co bond.
