The reduction of acid chlorides with trialkylsilanes has been reported in the literature. The acid chloride is treated with triethylsilane and palladium on carbon as the catalyst at elevated temperature.[‌40‌] The method is highly substrate dependent and less suitable for aliphatic acid chlorides than for aromatic ones. The reaction has also been performed with platinum or rhodium complexes as catalysts.[‌41‌] The method is used much less frequently than the analogous reduction of thioesters.
