Hydrosilylation of carbonyl and carboxyl groups catalysed by Mn(i) complexes bearing triazole ligands†
Manganese(I) complexes bearing triazole ligands are reported as catalysts for the hydrosilylation of carbonyl and carboxyl compounds. The desired reaction proceeds readily at 80 °C within 3 hours at catalyst loadings as low as 0.25 to 1 mol%. Hence, good to excellent yields of alcohols could be obtained for a wide range of substrates including ketones, esters, and carboxylic acids illustrating the versatility of the metal/ligand combination.
