Author affiliations

Abstract

Platinum complexes bearing bulky N-heterocyclic carbene (NHC) ligands, i.e., [Pt(IPr*)(dvtms)] (where, IPr* = 1,3-bis{2,6-bis(diphenylmethyl)-4-methylphenyl}imidazol-2-ylidene) and [Pt(IPr*OMe)(dvtms)] (where, IPr*OMe = 1,3-bis{2,6-bis(diphenylmethyl)-4-methoxyphenyl}imidazol-2-ylidene, dvtms = divinyltetramethyldisiloxane) catalyse nearly quantitatively and highly or completely the selective hydrosilylation of terminal olefins as well as terminal or internal acetylenes.
