Abstract

Silylation of C-H bonds in pyridine can provide a building block that can be then used for further reactions. The reaction between pyridine and various silanes utilizes a diruthenium complex as a catalyst. This reaction is carried out at 160-180 °C with different diruthenium complexes with 3- silylpyridine as the main product (30-40% yield). The different effects of each diruthenium compound on the reaction will be presented. Reactions have also been done using pyridine derivatives and the percent yields and possible intermediates will be presented. The reaction products were isolated and fully characterized by NMR spectroscopy and GC-MS.
