Disclosed is a mild, scalable, and chemoselective catalytic cross-dehydrogenative C–H bond functionalization protocol for the construction of C(sp)–Si bonds in a single step. The scope of the alkyne and hydrosilane partners is substantial, providing an entry point into various organosilane building blocks and additionally enabling the discovery of a number of novel synthetic strategies. Remarkably, the optimal catalysts are NaOH and KOH.
