Abstract

A novel, additive-free, and clean conjugate addition reaction of organosiloxanes to α,β-unsaturated carbonyl compounds catalyzed by a cationic rhodium complex in water-containing solvent has been developed. A plausible reaction mechanism involving the addrtive-free transmetalation step between the rhodium complex and the silicon reagent is proposed.
