Summary

Our starting materials for the synthesis of iminosilanes are aminofluorosilanes that undergo fluorine-chlorine exchange with Me3SiCl after lithiation; for this reason we are interested in the examination of such lithium derivatives. Following this preparation route we were recently able to isolate new iminosilanes. Once the unsaturated Si[DOUBLE BOND]N bond is synthesized there are nearly unlimited possibilities of preparing new molecules. Here Lewis base adducts with THF and pyridine are reported. The latter decompose by heating in toluene under Stevens migration. Reactions of iminosilanes with Lewis acids gave the first monomeric aminoalanes. Finally a few examples of [2+2] and [2+3] cycloadditions are described.
