Abstract

A platinum(0) complex bearing a cyclic (alkyl)(amino)silylene and a 1,3-divinyl-1,1,3,3-tetramethyldisiloxane (DVTMS) was synthesized and isolated in the form of colorless crystals. The single-crystal X-ray diffraction analysis of this complex in combination with theoretical calculations indicated that the Pt→Si π-back-donation in this complex is weaker than that in the corresponding cyclic-dialkylsilylene-ligated Pt complex. The performance of this complex in the catalytic hydrosilylation of (Me3SiO)2MeSi-H with various terminal alkenes that contain functional groups was comparable to that of the corresponding cyclic dialkylsilylene/DVTMS Pt(0) complex.
