Abstract

Easily accessible, simple phosphino-platinum(0) complexes catalyze (0.1-1 mol % equivalent) the deuteration of silanes in good yields under mild conditions (60 °C, 1 atm). The catalysis is mediated by platinum(II) deuteride/hydride complexes that are in equilibrium with the precursor Pt(0) complexes. The Pt(II) complexes can also be inserted into the Si-H bond of silanes to give intermediate Pt(IV) complexes. The proposed mechanism for catalysis is supported by density functional theory calculations.
