Abstract

A family of copper(I)–NHC azolyl complexes was synthesized and deployed in the hydrosilylation of dicyclo-hexylketone to probe the role of the anionic ligand on catalytic performance. The azolyl ligand is shown to have a crucial role in catalytic activity without the need for additives, and this at very low catalyst loading.
