The coupling of HSiEt3 and related silanes to β-diiminate ligands is achieved through a series of Si[BOND]H, C[BOND]H, and Si[BOND]C bond-breaking and bond-forming reactions. Complex 1 (see scheme) loses an Et(Si) group as ethane and couples the remaining SiEt2H fragment to a benzylic methyl group of the ligand skeleton. According to DFT calculations, the reaction involves silylene intermediates.
