Influence of the silyl group on the reactivity of some ortho-lithiated aryl alkyl sulfides

Krzysztof Durka , Tomasz Kliś , Janusz Serwatowski , Krzysztof Woźniak


The lithiation of brominated aryl (α-dimethylsilyl)alkyl sulfides in diethyl ether produces stable heterocyclic silanes, which were characterized by 1H, 13C, and 29Si NMR spectroscopy and by X-ray crystallography. The reaction involves the intramolecular attack of the phenyl carbanion on the silicon atom with the formation of a pentacoordinated silicon intermediate. The stability of the formed intermediate depends on the solvent. It decomposes easily in THF at -78 °C with Si-C bond cleavage; however, it is stable in diethyl ether at room temperature. Addition of water results in the Si–H bond cleavage, while the heterocyclic ring containing the silicon atom is conserved.
