Chloroplatinic acid modified with triphenylphosphine, -arsine and -stibine, some platinum-alkene and platinum-phosphine complexes were found to be efficient catalysts for the addition of triethoxysilane to allylamine yielding γ- and β-aminopropyltriethoxysilane. All the catalysts exhibited higher activity and some also higher selectivity compared to chloroplatinic acid. The effect of reaction conditions and the catalyst upon the proportion of both isomeric adducts is reported.
