Hydrosilylation is a key technology for the production of organofunctional silanes and silicones.  A wide range of materials, added either purposely or inadvertently can impact the activation, activity, selectivity and deactivation of Pt catalysts.  Successful process design and operation of commercial hydrosilylation processes requires careful attention to these materials.
