Abstract

A new flexible and stereoselective protocol for the synthesis of the compounds of the general formula, (Z)-Ph2RSiCH=CHSiRPh2 (where R is an alkyl, alkenyl or alkoxy substituent) has been developed. The title compounds have been efficiently obtained by ruthenium hydride complex [RuHCl(CO)(PCy3)2]-catalyzed (Z)-selective silylative coupling cyclization of 1,2-bis(diphenylvinylsiloxy)ethane or N,N′-dimethyl-N,N′-di(diphenylvinylsilyl)ethane-1,2-diamine to generate respective disilacyclic platforms, followed by their reaction with Grignard reagents or alcohols. (Z)-Bis(silyl)ethenes could not be synthesized by a metathesis procedure.
