Silylenes, silenes, and disilenes : novel silicon-based reagents for organic synthesis?

Steel, P. G. and Ottosson, H. (2006) 'Silylenes, silenes, and disilenes : novel silicon-based reagents for organic synthesis?', Chemistry : a European journal., 12 (6). pp. 1576-1585.


Silylenes, silenes, and disilenes are silicon analogues of carbenes and alkenes. Since the first detection and isolation of these species a few decades ago, focus has been given to their fundamental structure and reactivity properties. Recent developments show that the time is set to exploit their unique chemistry in applied areas. Emerging applications in catalysis and stereoselective synthesis point to a new field within synthetic organosilicon chemistry.
