Use of pentamethyldisiloxane in the palladium-catalyzed cyclization/hydrosilylation of functionalized dienes.
[reaction--see text] Pentamethyldisiloxane reacts with a range of functionalized dienes in the presence of a catalytic 1:1 mixture of (N-N)Pd(Me)Cl [N-N = 1, 10-phenanthroline or (R)-(+)-4-isopropyl-2-(2-pyridinyl)-2-oxazoline] and NaBAr(4) [Ar = 3,5-C(6)H(3)(CF(3))(2)] to form the corresponding silylated carbocycles in good yield and with good stereoselectivity. Treatment of these silylated carbocycles with excess KF and peracetic acid at room temperature for 48 h formed the corresponding alcohols in excellent yield with retention of stereochemistry.
