A catalytic protocol that reliably predicts and controls the site-selective incorporation of CO2 to a wide range of unsaturated hydrocarbons utilizing water as formal hydride source is described. This platform unlocks an opportunity to catalytically repurpose three abundant, orthogonal feedstocks under mild conditions.
