Lewis Acid-Catalyzed Hydrostannation of Acetylenes. Regio- and Stereoselective Trans-Addition of Tributyltin Hydride and Dibutyltin Dihydride.


Lewis acids such as ZrCl(4) or HfCl(4) catalyze the hydrostannation of acetylenes 1 by tributyltin hydride to produce the cis vinylstannanes 2 by regio- and stereoselective anti-hydrostannation. The hydrostannation of acetylenes using dibutyltin dihydride was also catalyzed by ZrCl(4) to give the stereodefined Z-Z divinyltin derivatives 4 by an anti… (More)
