This work developed three high-nuclearity {Co14} clusters of C1–C3 with inner [Co8] backbone fixed by six ambient CoCl2 species. The catalyst C1 exhibited highly regio- and stereoselective hydrosilylation of alkynes with primary and secondary silane to produce α-vinylsilanes. More importantly, C1 shows high regioselectivity for electronically unbiased alkyl alkynes, and the α-selectivity of some alkyl alkynes has not been achieved in previous reports. Leaching tests and reusability proved that the reaction is a heterogeneous process.
