Proton catalysis of nucleophilic substitution at pentacoordinate silicon.
Journal of Organometallic Chemistry, 655(1-2),
Addition of acid to the pentacoordinate fluorosilane 8, leads to enhanced exchange of fluorine and loss of diastereotopicity of the silicon methyl groups. A DNMR study of the H-1-NMR spectra suggests a dissociative mechanism involving protonation of the fluorine leaving group. Variable temperature studies suggest that at lower temperatures the tetracoordinate form is favoured. (C) 2002 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
