Iridium-Catalyzed, Diastereoselective Dehydrogenative Silylation of Terminal Alkenes with (TMSO)2MeSiH
Ligands' choice: The title reaction was achieved under mild conditions with low catalyst loading. The diastereoselectivity of the reaction can be controlled by choosing the appropriate ancillary ligand (see scheme; coe=cyclooctene). The silylation products undergo further transformation such as oxidation or cross-coupling.
