AbstractPN3P-Ir pincer hydride complexes were synthesized and characterized as catalysts and key intermediates in the direct hydrogenation of CO2 to formate under mild conditions. The formation of a dearomatized PN3P*-Ir(i)-CO species was identified as a plausible key process accountable for the loss of catalytic activity in the CO2 hydrogenation.
