Abstract

Compounds having a vinyldimethylsilyl group at both terminals have been successfully cyclized by ruthenium hydride catalysts to give selectively disilacycles of various ring sizes via a metathetical reaction, i.e. ethene elimination from the two terminal vinyl groups, not involving metallocarbene-metallacyclobutane type intermediates.
