Synthesis of alkylsiloxanes
Cobalt(II) amide complexes are effective catalysts for the hydrosilylation of alkenes with tertiary silanes. Mechanistic studies revealed that cobalt(II) amides can react with hydrosilane to form the genuine catalytically active cobalt(I) species, silylamide, and hydrogen.

Platinum oxide is a versatile and powerful hydrosilylation catalyst for alkenes. Tolerance of various functional groups (amines, epoxides, nitriles, carbon acids and esters), highly reproducible results and easy removal make this catalyst a useful tool for hydrosilylation.
