Silylene insertion into allylic ethers occurs suprafacially to provide enantioenriched allylic silanes and disilanes. Silylene insertion to a variety of protected allylic alcohols utilizing silver- and copper-mediated conditions proved to be a general method for allylic silane formation. Allylic disilanes reacted similarly to allylic silanes, undergoing both annulation and allylation reactions.
