We report the development of a well-defined Fe catalyst and its application to the regio- and stereoselective 1,4-hydrosilylation of 1,3-dienes. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first example of accessing a characterized low-valent Fe catalyst by controlled reductive elimination from a readily accessible Fe precatalyst.
