A single-site, iron catecholate-containing porous organic polymer was prepared and utilized as a stable and remarkably active catalyst for the hydrosilylation of ketones and aldehydes. In some instances, catalyst loadings of 0.043–2.1 mol % [Fe] were sufficient for complete hydrosilylation of aldehydes and ketones within 15 min at room temperature. The catalyst can be recycled at least three times without a drop in catalytic activity. This system is an example of an immobilized homogeneous catalyst with no homogeneous analogue.
