Summary

Recent achievements in two catalytic reactions, i.e., silylative coupling and cross-metathesis of alkenes and dienes with vinyl-silicon compounds, which resulted in new synthetic routes to organosilicon molecular and macromolecular compounds are presented. The silylative coupling, also called dehydrogenative or trans-silylation and silyl group transfer, is catalyzed by metal complexes which either contain or initiate the formation of M-H and M-Si bonds, where M = Ru, Rh, Co and fr. Cross-metathesis, which was developed very recently, proceeds in the presence of metallacarbenes, mainly those of ruthenium (e.g., Grubbs catalyst).
