One facile and efficient strategy for the hydrosilylation of steric 1,1-disubstituted terminal alkenes is demonstrated. Investigations on substrate scope and control experiments revealed the necessity of thioether in promoting this process under a simple iridium catalysis system. This convenient and feasible method is expected to be useful in the synthesis of sulfur-containing organosilicon polymers with different side-chains.
