Abstract

The addition of organosiliconhydrides to olefins has been of laboratory and industrial importance for twenty-five years. Literally hundreds of examples may be cited describing reactions of organosilicon­hydrides with a wide spectrum of olefinic compounds. These reactions have been conducted in either the catalyzed or uncatalyzed state. While the reactions may be forced under the influence of heat and pressure, they are more economically and practically carried out in the presence of catalysts. Catalysts encompass a wide variety of materials including peroxides, tertiary bases, metals, metal salts, U.V light, and gamma radiation.
