Title: Bimetallic catalysts for CO.sub.2 hydrogenation and H.sub.2 generation from formic acid and/or salts thereof

The invention relates to a ligand that may be used to create a catalyst including a coordination complex is formed by the addition of two metals; Cp, Cp* or an unsubstituted or substituted .pi.-arene; and two coordinating solvent species or solvent molecules. The bimetallic catalyst may be used in the hydrogenation of CO.sub.2 to form formic acid and/or salts thereof, and in the dehydrogenation of formic acid and/or salts thereof to form H.sub.2 and CO.sub.2.
