Rh(III)-Catalysed solvent-free hydrodehalogenation of alkyl halides by tertiary silanes

Author affiliations

Abstract

Efficient catalytic reduction of CDCl3 and other alkyl halides, including persistent organic pollutants, by different tertiary silanes using the unsaturated silyl-hydrido-Rh(III) complex {Rh(H)[SiMe2(o-C6H4SMe)](PPh3)2}[BArF4] as a pre-catalyst is accomplished. The reactions are performed in a solvent-free manner. On account of experimental evidence, a simplified catalytic cycle is suggested for the hydrodehalogenation of CDCl3.
