Abstract

Tris(triphenylphosphine)cuprous chloride [Cu(PPh3)3Cl] has been found to be an efficient catalyst for the dehydrosilylation of carboxylic acids with silanes. In the presence of 4 mol% Cu(PPh3)3Cl, dehydrosilylation reactions in acetonitrile afforded the corresponding silyl esters at 80°C in good yields. It was noted that triphenylphosphine itself also functions as an adequate catalyst for the reaction.
