Organosillicon reagents have been found as versatile catalysts or promoters for a broad range of organic reactions due to their special properties of multifunction. An important application of organosilicon reagents is in the research field of multicomponent reactions (MCRs), which provides a vast number of practical synthesis for different molecular libraries. We present in this review the recent research progress of MCRs employing organosillicon reagents as catalysts or promoters for the first time.
