The substitution of cobalt for precious metals in catalysis is a variation on the ancient alchemical theme of transmuting base metals into precious ones. In their Communication on page 12102 ff., S. K. Hanson et al. describe the cobalt-catalyzed hydrogenation of alkenes, aldehydes, ketones, and imines under mild reaction conditions. The precatalyst is a cationic cobalt(II) alkyl complex. (The artwork is by Josh Smith, Los Alamos National Laboratory.)
