PtCl2 plays a dual role as hydrosilylation and alkenylation catalysts in a one-pot hydrosilylation of terminal alkynes with triethylsilane and subsequent alkenylation of aldehydes with the resultant (E)-alkenylsilanes. The latter alkenylation step proceeds smoothly in the presence of p-benzoquinone and LiI to give allyl silyl ethers in good yields. This one-pot alkenylation tolerates a reasonable range of functional groups.
