Hydrosilylation reaction of various fluoroalkylated alkynes with Et(3)SiH in the presence of a catalytic amount of Co(2)(CO)(8) was investigated. The hydrosilylation of the alkynes having fluoroalkyl and aryl groups took place smoothly with good regioselectivity (ca. 80:20). In sharp contrast, the reaction of the alkynes having a fluoroalkyl group and a benzyl-type substituent, or various propargyl alcohols gave the corresponding vinylsilanes in an excellent regio- and stereoselective manner. Treatment of the vinylsilanes with various aldehydes in the presence of Zn(OTf)(2) and TBAF afforded the coupling products in good yields.
