Ru(II)-Catalyzed RCM Reactions in the Construction of Silacycloalkenes and Silaspirenes.
Published: 11 September 2000 by MDPI in The 4th International Electronic Conference on Synthetic Organic Chemistry session General Organic Synthesis
Abstract: Five-, six- and seven-membered silacycloalkenes have been prepared by carbon-carbon bond forming cyclisation of dienyl- and enynylsilanes under RCM conditions. The relative ease of ring formation from dienes was in the order six- >seven- > five-membered rings. A conjugated vinylsilacyclopentene was formed from a corresponding enyne substrate. Silaspirenes have been prepared from silacarbacycles by the same methodology
