The utilization of manganese catalysts for hydrofunctionalization reactions has grown at a rapid pace in recent years. Early efforts to develop manganese catalysts for carbonyl hydrosilylation have been followed up with considerable improvements in activity and substrate reduction scope. Efficient manganese catalysts for carbonyl, formate, ester, and alkene hydrosilylation have been discovered. Furthermore, recent reports have demonstrated deoxygenative amide reduction, carbon dioxide reduction, and even the formation of silicones that are traditionally prepared using platinum catalysts. Manganese catalysts have also been shown to catalyze asymmetric ketone hydrosilylation and hydroboration with excellent enantioselectivity. A considerable amount of mechanistic information has been gathered throughout these contributions, which will undoubtedly guide the development of next-generation manganese catalysts.
