Cross-dehydrogenative coupling of various terminal alkynes and monohydrosilanes efficiently proceeded in the presence of gold supported on OMS-2 (Au/OMS-2) using O2 as a terminal oxidant, affording the corresponding alkynylsilanes in moderate to high yields (see picture). The observed catalysis was truly heterogeneous, and the catalyst could be reused at least ten times without a significant loss of its high catalytic performance.
