Synthesis of 1,1-disubstituted derivatives of 2,5-diphenylsilacyclopent-3-enes and 2,5-diphenylsilacyclopentanes was investigated.
1,1-Disubstituted derivatives of 2,5-diphenylsilacyclopent-3-enes having dialkoxy, 1-alkoxy-1-methyl, 1-alkoxy-1-chloro, and 1-alkyl-1-chloro were prepared by one-pot reaction of (1E, 3E)-1,4-diphenylbuta-1,3-diene and dichlorosilanes in the presence of magnesium. 1,1-Dialkoxy derivatives were obtained in about 80% yield, but 1-alkyl-1-chloro derivatives were obtained under 50% yield. Each silacyclopentenes was given as the mixture of trans and two cis isomers. 1,1-Dialkoxy derivatives were obtained as a trans rich form and 1-alkyl-1-chloro derivatives were obtained as only cis isomer. Then the hydrogenation of 1,1-disubstituted derivatives of 2,5-diphenylsilacyclopent-3-enes by hydrogen gas in the presence of Pd-C gave the corresponding derivatives of 2,5-diphenylsilacyclopentanes.
