Direct Trifluoromethylsilylation and Cyanosilylation of Aldehydes via Electrochemically Triggered Steric Hindrance Release

Abstract

Initiator-free electrochemical trifluoromethylsilylation and cyanosilylation of aldehydes were developed in an undivided cell. DFT study reveals that direct cathodic activation of trimethylsilyl reagents significantly released the congestion around ‘Si’ atom, allowing the fomation of concerted anion intermediates with aldehydes. Thus an intramolecular -CF3, -CN migration makes reation much easier without initiators.
