Alkenylsilane Cross-Coupling Agent

The cross-coupling reaction is a highly useful methodology for the formation of carbon-carbon bonds. It involves two reagents, with one typically being a suitable organometallic reagent - the nucleophile - and the other a suitable organic substrate, normally an unsaturated halide, tosylate or similar - the electrophile.

2-Bromovinyltrimethylsilane; 2-(Trimethylsilyl)vinylbromide
  • Contains 10-15% cis-isomer
  • Slowly decomposes above 60 °C yielding ethylene
  • Useful for cross-coupling to 2-substituted vinylsilanes
  • Potential for cross-coupling protocols to yield β-substituted vinylsilanes
