In this work, we report the first practical application of high-valent oxo-complexes for the reduction of alkenes to the corresponding alkanes. The catalytic system Ph(Me)(2)SiH/ReIO2(PPh3)(2) (5 mol %) proved to be very efficient for the reduction of mono- and disubstituted alkenes under solvent-free conditions.
