Rhodium complex catalyzed hydrosilylative carbocyclization of various allenynes and trialkoxysilanes proceeded smoothly under an atmosphere of carbon monoxide to give hydrosilylated cyclic products. The intramolecular coupling of allene and alkyne is chemo-and regioselective: silylrhodation to an internal olefinic moiety of the allene proceeded exclusively, and subsequent carbometalation to the alkyne provided cyclic 1,4-dienes. The use of alkoxysilane and the substituents on the allene terminus play pivotal roles in the selectivity.
