Abstract

The rhodium-catalyzed synthesis of silafluorenes from biphenylhydrosilanes is described. This highly efficient reaction proceeds via both Si-H and C-H bond activation, producing only H2 as a side product. Using this method, a ladder-type bis-silicon-bridged p-terphenyl could also be synthesized.
