The hydrosilylation of 2- and 4-alkylcyclohexanones with Ph2SiH2 was studied under various conditions. The isomeric distribution of the resulting alcohols, i.e. the stereochemistry of the hydrosilylation, is influenced by the position and size of the alkyl groups, the catalyst concentration, the reaction temperature, and the types of ligand attached.
