The fluoride reagents, TBAH2F3 and TBAHF2 (TBA: tetrabutylammonium), are found to catalyze the reactions of hexamethyldisilane with 1,3-dienes, aliphatic aldehydes, and aromatic aldehydes to give 1,4-disilyl-2-butenes, α-silyl alcohols and pinacols, respectively. Using an equimolar amount of TBAHF2 and disilanes, reduction of carbonyl compounds occurs in place of the silyl group addition.
