Reducing alkenes to tears: Addition of structurally diverse N-heterocyclic carbenes (NHCs) to silicon allows the reduction of propargylic and styryl alcohols through an organocatalyzed silylation/direct hydride transfer tandem reaction (see scheme). Catalytic turnover is enabled by the switch to and from hypervalent silicon. This provides a new synthetic application of NHC-main group element complexes.
