Abstract

original image

Tolerate silicone! The stable [RuCl2(p-cymene]2 complex is an efficient catalyst for the direct chemoselective hydrosilylation of functionalized aldimines and ketimines into amines, using polymethylhydroxysiloxane as an inexpensive, stable, and safe hydrosilane source. The catalysis operates in ethanol, under air at room temperature, and tolerates the ketone ester and alkene functionality.
