In the presence of Pd(0) and a phosphine, a hydrosilylation of 1,3-enynes with Me2SiHCl yields dienylsilanes with (E)-configuration and with the silicon group added to the internal alkyne carbon atom. Subsequent hydrolysis gives silanols, that serve as precursors to conjugated dienes with different substitution patterns.
