Different but almost equal: The striking similarities between Brookhart's iridium(III) pincer complex and the electron-deficient tris(pentafluorophenyl)borane in transformations involving Si[BOND]H bond activation are highlighted. Coordination of the Si[BOND]H bond to either Lewis acid enhances the electrophilicity of the silicon atom, thereby enabling its transfer to various Lewis basic groups (see scheme, Do=acetone).
