Chemoselective Alkene Hydrosilylation Catalyzed by Nickel Pincer Complexes

Chemoselective hydrosilylation of functionalized alkenes is difficult to achieve using base-metal catalysts. Reported herein is that well-defined bis(amino) amide nickel pincer complexes are efficient catalysts for anti-Markovnikov hydrosilylation of terminal alkenes with turnover frequencies of up to 83000 per hour and turnover numbers of up to 10000. Alkenes containing amino, ester, amido, ketone, and formyl groups are selectively hydrosilylated. A slight modification of reaction conditions allows tandem isomerization/hydrosilylation reactions of internal alkenes using these nickel catalysts.
