Abstract

Cu(I)-catalyzed anti-SN2′-type reduction of internal propargylic carbonates with hydrosilanes affords various di- and trisubstituted allenes with high regioselectivities; the reactions are compatible with functional groups and work efficiently for the synthesis of optically-active allenes.
