A dearomatized PN3P*-nickel hydride complex has been prepared by oxidative addition process. The first nickel-catalyzed hydrosilylation of CO2 to methanol has been achieved, with unprecedented turnover numbers. Selectvie methylation and formylation of amines with CO2 were demonstrated by such PN3P*-nickel hydride complex, highlighting its versatile functions in CO2 reduction.
