Abstract

original image

Well-shuffled: An unexpected substituent distribution reaction via alkyldiarylsilylium ions leads to a distribution of substituents. Starting from alkyldiaryl silanes, this reaction provides a facile synthetic approach to sterically highly hindered triarylsilylium ions. These silylium ions can be applied in dihydrogen activation reactions.
