Efforts Towards the Synthesis of Silanes for Their Use in Catalysis and as Molecular Wires Noushad Mohd The Leighton group has long been interested in developing strained silanes for their use in polyketide synthesis. Recently, our interests have led us to develop a new type of silicon Lewis acid and catalyst with high levels of reactivity. Upon activation with a thiourea, a stabilized silylium ion is formed allowing for the facile allylation of aldehydes and ketones, in addition to Diels-Alderdoi:10.7916/d8-3sr8-0w67 fatcat:k3droj42ynhirewmrbs5cpbtwu
