Enhancing the synthetic utility of silicon: an investigation into organosilicon chemistry
The aims of this work were two-fold - to enhance the 'latent functionality' of a silicon centre by expanding the range of functionalisation reactions available to such compounds, and to develop novel silicon-tethered transformations in order to increase the utility of this attractive synthetic strategy.
1. Aryle Silane Oxidation
Building upon the earlier work of Tamao and co-workers, we have developed a mild, functional group-tolerant oxidation of arylsilanes, allowing...Expand abstract
