Abstract

The platinum-catalyzed hydrosilylation of amides to afford amines selectively is reported. By using defined platinum/N-heterocyclic carbene complexes, the reduction of secondary and tertiary amines takes place under mild conditions. The selective catalytic hydrosilylation of amides is reported. By using defined platinum/N-heterocyclic carbene (NHC) complexes, the reduction of secondary and tertiary amines proceeds in good yields under mild conditions.
