The hydrosilylation of carbonyl derivatives has been explored by the activation of diphenylsilane in the presence of a catalytic amount of an N-heterocyclic carbene (NHC). Presumably, a hypervalent silicon intermediate featuring strong Lewis acid character allows dual activation of both the carbonyl moiety and the hydride at the silicon center. Reduction under mild conditions could be accomplished using this organocatalytic process. Some interesting selectivities have been encountered. © Georg Thieme Verlag Stuttgart · New York.
