(Equation presented) A variety of alkynylsilanes were efficiently prepared via direct silylation of terminal alkynes with aminosilanes in the presence of zinc halides. Base- and nucleophile-sensitive functionalities were perfectly tolerated under the above reaction conditions. Initial mechanistic studies support the electrophilic character of this transformation.
