Abstract: The catalytic activity of various rhodium carbene complexes has been investigated. These complexes are active for the hydrosilylation of a wide variety of unsaturated organic molecules such as olefins, acetylenes and dienes. Their activity is comparable to other rhodium(I) complexes previously used as hydrosilylation catalysts. The yield of products is found to vary with catalyst, silane and organic substrate.
