Catalytic hydrosilylation of oxalic acid: chemoselective formation of functionalized C2-products

Author affiliations

Abstract

Oxalic acid is an attractive entry to functionalized C2-products because it can be formed by C–C coupling of two CO2 molecules under electrocatalytic reduction. Herein, we describe the first attempts to reduce oxalic acid by catalytic hydrosilylation. Using B(C6F5)3 as a Lewis acidic catalyst, oxalic acid can be converted to reduced C2-molecules, with high chemoselectivity, under mild reaction conditions.
