Abstract : The efficient synthesis of hydrosilanes by catalytic ydrogenolysis of chlorosilanes is described, using an Iridum (III) pincer catalyst. A careful selection of a nitrogen base (incl. sterically hindered guanidines and phosphazenes) can unlock the preparation of Me3SiH, Et3SiH and Me2SiHCl in high yield (up to 98%), directly from their corresponding chlorosilanes.
