Copper-catalyzed silylation of cyclopropenes using (trifluoromethyl)trimethylsilane

Author affiliations

Abstract

A variety of cyclopropenes undergo direct silylation using (trifluoromethyl)trimethylsilane in the presence of a copper–bisphosphine catalyst; under these conditions, cyclopropenes that might otherwise undergo ring-opening are silylated efficiently.
