Abstract

Silver-catalyzed silylene transfer to alkenes forms vinylsilacyclopropanes regioselectively. These allylic silanes undergo additions to aldehydes to form seven-membered-ring trans-alkenes with high diastereoselectivity. The high reactivity of the trans-alkenes is evidenced by their formal [1,3]-sigmatropic rearrangement reactions and the rapid additions of oxygen-hydrogen bonds across the carbon-carbon double bonds.
