Catalytic N–Si Coupling as a Vehicle for Silane Dehydrocoupling via α-Silylene Elimination

Abstract

Exploration of (N3N)ZrNMe2 (1, N3N = N(CH2CH2NSiMe3)33–) as a catalyst for the cross-dehydrocoupling or heterodehydrocoupling of silanes and amines suggests silylene reactivity. Further study of the catalysis and stoichiometric modeling reactions point to α-silylene elimination as the pivotal mechanistic step, which expands the 3p elements known to engage in this catalysis and avails a new strategy for catalytic generation of low-valent fragments.
