[New Brochure] Silicon Compounds

Silicon Compounds are categorized by atomic bonding patterns such as silicon-carbon, silicon-hydrogen, silicon-silicon and etc. They are able to be utilized widely not only organic synthesis but also material research.
- Many silicon compounds are categorized by atomic bonding patterns
- Silicon compounds having bonds with heavy-atoms like silicon-, phosphorus- and sulfur-atoms are also listed

TCI has a wide variety of product brochures. Most of them are available in PDF format and can be downloaded from our website.

Research Article

Borafluorene for the Efficient Construction of Extended π-Conjugated Systems

Fukushima, Shoji and coworkers reported that 9-chloro-9-borafluorene mediates sequential alkyne insertion (1,2-carboboration) and oxidative deborylation/Csp2–Csp2 coupling reactions, affording extended π-conjugated molecules. The sequential reactions can be performed in a one-pot fashion and are very useful for the construction of a wide variety of π-conjugated systems, which are potentially applicable to organic electronics.


Product Highlight

A Bisphosphine Usable for Metal-free Hydrogenations

1,8-Bis(diphenylphosphino)naphthalene (1) has two diphenylphosphino groups and acts as a bulky Lewis base. The bulkiness of 1 is also effective for forming unquenched Lewis acid-base pairs, “frustrated Lewis pairs (FLPs)”, by treatment with a Lewis acid like tris(pentafluorophenyl)borane (2). Erker et al. have applied them to activate a molecular hydrogen and the subsequent metal-free hydrogenations of silyl enol ethers. In this reaction, molecular hydrogens seem to be activated by the FLP-induced acid-base cooperation.
