Carboxylic acids were applied to an indium triiodide-catalyzed reductive aldol reaction and a reductive cyanation in order to produce aldol adducts and cyanohydrins, respectively, in which the separate addition of two kinds of hydrosilanes was crucial in a combination with either ketene silyl acetals or silyl cyanides.
