An iron-catalysed hydrosilylation of ketones

Author affiliations


The combination of Fe(OAc)2 and multi-nitrogen-based ligands such as N,N,N′,N′-tetramethyethylenediamine, bis-tert-butyl-bipyridine, or bis(oxazolinyl)pyridine can efficiently catalyse hydrosilylation of ketones to give the corresponding alcohols in high yields including asymmetric catalysis.
