Abstract

Organosilanes serve as precursors to organocopper intermediates in a copper-catalyzed addition to vinylepoxides (see scheme). Ligand structure has a significant effect on the reactivity of the organocopper intermediate, and the catalysis proceeds without the need for a stoichiometric silane activator such as fluoride.
