Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Metal-catalyzed silylene transfer to imines provides an efficient synthesis of silaaziridines. These strained cyclic silanes undergo selective bond-forming reactions, permitting the synthesis of nitrogen-containing compounds after protodesilylation of the resulting vinyl silane.
