The Stereochemistry of Organometallic Compounds. XXXIV. Regioselection in the Hydroformylation of Silylalkenes Academic Article uri icon


  • The regiochemistry of hydroformylation of alkenes can be controlled by the use of bulky silyl groups attached to the alkene. Use of the t-butyldiphenylsilyl group leads to almost total regiocontrol and the method has been applied to the synthesis of aldols.
