trans-hydrosilylation internal alkynes: notes/modifications


Trost and Ball discovered the efficient Ru-catalyst for Markovnikov hydrosilylation of terminal alkynes as well as trans-hydrosilylation of internal alkynes. This reaction is the only general method for accessing geminal alkenylsilanes via hydrosilylation of terminal...
