Hydrosilylation Using SiliaCat Pt0

Hydrosilylation reactions (or catalytic hydrosilation) are a widely used method to prepare organosilicon products. The reaction consists of the addition of Si-H bonds on unsaturated bonds like alkenes, alkynes or ketones, where catalysts are often required (usually H2PtCl6). SiliaCat Pt0 can be used for hydrosilylation reactions. Some examples are shown to the right

Hydrosilylation Typical Experimental Procedure

Conventional Experimental Conditions

Reaction - A 100 ml two neck dry round bottom flask equipped with a condenser and a rubber septum is filled with 1 mol % SiliaCat Pt0 and was degassed two times for 15 minutes kept under argon conditions. The anhydrous solvent, the silane (95% pure) and the olefin (previously degassed for 15 minutes under argon) were added using a syringe. The reaction mixture was either stirred at room temperature or heated at 60°C until the GC/MS analysis showed maximum conversion

Work-up - Once the reaction is complete the catalyst was filtered off and washed with toluene. The filtrate was concentrated to give a crude product. The conversion in the desired product was determined by GC/MS.

Note: Unless otherwise indicated, all manipulations were carried out under argon conditions. In general, reactions were performed on a 2 mmol scale in 15 ml anhydrous toluene.
