Abstract

<jats:p>Activation of the dialkylpalladium complex (phen)Pd(CH3)2 (phen = 1,10-phenanthroline) with B(C6F5)3 affords a competent catalyst for the dimerization of vinyl silanes. All organic products of the catalytic dimerization of trialkoxyvinylsilanes were characterized by in situ NMR spectroscopy and GC–MS. The putative palladium cation was characterized by NMR spectroscopy. Upon activation, the palladium complex generated products in moderate yield (60–70%) and selectivity (~60:40, dimer:disproportionation products).</jats:p>
