Abstract: The hydrosilylation of olefins with allyldichlorosilane in the presence of chloroplatinic acid diluted with isopropanol gave allylalkyldichlorosilanes, retaining the allyl group. When the olefin was used in fivefold excess or more relative to allyldichlorosilane, allylalkyldichlorosilanes were obtained in good yields (63–89%), and the formation of double hydrosilylation products was reduced to less than 6%. The isomerization of allylsilane to 1-propenylsilane was suppressed by lowering reaction temperatures below 100°C. This hydrosilylation of olefins with allyldichlorosilane is a good synthetic route to an allyl group containing organodichlorosilanes.
