Hydrosilylation of 1-alkynes catalyzed by RhI(PPh3)3 gives (E)- and (Z)-alkenylsilanes in a stereodivergent manner by switching the reaction conditions and the order of the addition of the reagents. The reaction is also applied to the synthesis of silicon-containing polymers with (E) and (Z) main-chain structures via polyaddition. (C) 2000 Elsevier Science Ltd All rights reserved.
