Rhodium-Catalyzed Hydrosilylation of Ketones: Catalyst Development and Mechanistic Insights #chempaperaday 210

It's a very nice review on hydrosilylation with rhodium catalysts. Not the most recent, but a very good one.

There are very active and selective Rh catalysts out there, but the price of rhodium makes it less attractive. So, there is huge effort on developing catalysts with cheaper first row transition metals. Nevertheless, mechanisms of Rh catalyzed reactions are pretty well understood for now and it's still an active research area.
