Silacarboxylic acids have been demonstrated to be easy to handle, air-stable carbon monoxide precursors. Different silacarboxylic acids were synthesized from the corresponding chlorosilanes and carbon dioxide, and their decarbonylation, upon treatment with an array of activators, was evaluated. The release of CO from crystalline MePh(2)SiCO(2)H proved to be… CONTINUE READING
