The reaction of aryloxazolines with trialkylhydrosilanes using Ru3(CO)12 or Ru(H)2(CO)(PPh3)3 complex as a catalyst resulted in dehydrogenative silylation to form ortho silylated aryloxazolines in good to excellent yields. This reaction can be applied to aryloxazolines having either electron-donating (NMe2, OMe, and CH3) or -withdrawing (CF3 and F) groups.
