Curiosity and simplicity in the invention and discovery of new metal-mediated reactions for organic synthesis.
PURE AND APPLIED CHEMISTRY
135 - 142.
Two organometallic themes of current interest are presented. The scope and generality of the reductive deoxygenation of carbonyl compounds to organozinc carbenoids using zinc in combination with a silicon electrophile is discussed. Alkoxycyclopropanation can be achieved using orthoformates as substrates. Preliminary observations on the development of a rhodium-catalyzed tandem hydrosilylation-intramolecular aldol Sequence are discussed.
