    The first synthesis of planar-chiral benzosiloloferrocenes was achieved by the intramolecular reaction of 2-(dimethylhydrosilyl)arylferrocenes. The enantioselective cross dehydrogenative coupling of an sp<sup>2</sup> C-H bond of ferrocene with a Si-H bond proceeded efficiently with the use of a Rh-chiral diene catalyst.
