Alcoholysis of hydridesilanes to give silyl ethers catalyzed by rhodacarboranes closo-3,3-(Ph3P)2-3-H-3,1,2-RhC2B9H11 and closo-3,3-(η23-C7H7CH2)-3,1,2-RhC2B9H11

Brief Communications


Rhodacarboranes closo-3,3-(Ph3P)2-3-H-3,1,2-RhC2B9H11 and closo-(η23-C7H7CH2)-3,1,2-RhC2B9H11 are catalysts for the alcoholysis of hydridesilanes. Closo-3,3-(η23-C7H7CH2)-3,1,2-RhC2B9H11 displays greater activity than closo-3,3-(Ph3P)2-3-H-3,1,2-RhC2B9H11 though both rhodacarboranes catalyze the alcoholysis of hydridesilanes more efficiently than (Ph3P)3RhCl.
