The dihydride pincer complex [IrH2(POCOP)] reacts with surface silanols of mesoporous silica (SBA-15) to give the coordinatively unsaturated, yet stable hydridesiloxo Ir(III) species [IrH(O-SBA-15)(POCOP)]. The silica-grafted complex catalyses the hydrogenation of ethene and propene at low temperature and pressure without prior activation.
