Abstract

Turning over silanes: The first nanotube-based catalytic system for silane oxidation is reported (see scheme). The reusable gold–nanotube hybrid cleanly oxidizes both alkyl and aryl silanes in high yields, under mild reaction conditions, and compares most favorably to any other catalytic system in terms of overall efficacy and turnover values.
