An efficient approach to a variety of chiral silacyclopentanes having silicon stereogenic center based on the stereospecific transformations of C4 carbon stereogenic center of silacyclopentenols by ­Mitsunobu reaction or Tsuji–Trost reaction has been developed. The thus obtained substitution products can be converted into novel silacyclopentane triols, amines, and carboxylic acids in stereospecific manner.
