Rhodium-catalyzed intramolecular silylation of unactivated C(sp3)-H bonds.


The treatment of a variety of hydrosilanes, each incorporating a benzylic C(sp(3))-H bond, with a rhodium catalyst resulted in intramolecular dehydrogenative silylation. This silylation reaction was found to occur at typically unreactive C(sp(3))-H bonds located at terminal positions on alkyl chains. Interestingly, the rhodium catalyst also promoted… (More)
