Copper-catalyzed regiodivergent 1,4- and 1,6-conjugate silyl addition to diendioates: access to functionalized allylsilanes†
A copper-catalyzed regioselective 1,4- and 1,6-conjugate addition of a silyl reagent to diendioates was established. Various 1,4- and 1,6-protosilylation products were obtained in good yields and with high regioselectivity via tuning the ligands used in the reactions. This protocol has provided a simple and efficient method for the synthesis of multisubstituted functionalized allylsilanes.
