Abstract: AbstractThe complex [Cp*Ru(MeCN) 3 ]PF 6 is shown to catalyze the hydrosilylation of a wide range of alkynes. Terminal alkynes afford access to α-vinylsilane products with good regioselectivity. Deuterium labeling studies indicate a clean trans addition process is at work. The same complex is active in internal alkyne hydrosilylation, where absolute selectivity for the trans addition process is maintained. Several internal alkyne substrate classes, including propargylic alcohols and α,β-alkynyl carbonyl com…
