Abstract

A mild and highly efficient catalytic hydrosilylation protocol for room-temperature ester reductions has been developed using diethylzinc as the catalyst. The methodology is operationally simple, displays high functional group tolerance and provides for a facile access to a broad range of different alcohols in excellent yields.
