Deprotonative C-H silylation of functionalized arenes and heteroarenes using trifluoromethyltrialkylsilane with fluoride.


A highly selective C-H silylation reaction of functionalized arenes and heteroarenes was developed using Ruppert-Prakash reagent (TMSCF3) activated by alkali metal fluoride. TMSCF3 is considered to play dual roles as a precursor of a mild base and also as a silicon electrophile. The silylation is compatible with sensitive functional groups such as halogen… (More)
