Silyl ethers can be produced from alcohols and vinylsilanes under a rhodium(I) catalyst. The reaction is believed to proceed through an O-H bond cleavage of alcohol by rhodium(I) complex and a subsequent hydride insertion into vinylsilane followed by β-silyl elimination of the resulting β-silylethyl rhodium(III) complex.
