High Throughput Sequence-controlled Oligosiloxane Synthesis

Matsumoto and Shimada et al. have reported the high throughput oligosiloxane synthesis from some silanes as starting materials. According to their report, the coupling of trimethylsilyl acetate with dialkylsilanes in the presence of chlorobis(cyclooctene)iridium(I) dimer catalyst gives the desired disilyl acetals (1) in good yield. In this reaction, a rearrangement of the siloxy group of 1 proceeds in the presence of the tris(pentafluorophenyl)borane (2) catalyst and corresponding disiloxanes (3) are given effectively. 2 acts as a Si-H bond activator which enables the oligosiloxane synthesis to proceed with the coupling of third component organosilanes after the first two silane-component coupling, thus giving the related oligosilanes with five-silicon-atoms. Generally, sequential-controlled siloxane syntheses have been difficult. This synthetic method, however, is expected to be used for new oligosiloxane syntheses.

DABSO as a SO2 Source Usable for Direct Sulfonylative-Suzuki Coupling of Aryl Boronic Acids

Bis(sulfur dioxide)-1,4-diazabicyclo[2.2.2]octane adduct (DABSO) has been widely used as a SO2 source since it was first applied to synthesis of sulfonyl compounds by Willis et al. in 2011.1) For example, Willis et al. have performed the (CH3CN)4CuBF4 complex catalyzed direct sulfonylative-Suzuki coupling of aryl boronic acids with electrophiles using DABSO as a SO2 source. In this reaction, nucleophilic aryl sulfinates are formed as a synthetic intermediate, and further react with various electrophiles like epoxides, in situ prepared chloroamines and an active fluorinating reagent (NFSI) to afford the related sulfones, sulfonamides and sulfonylfluorides.2) DABSO can be used as a SO2 surrogate reagent because gaseous SO2 is highly toxic, so it is expected to be further applied to organic syntheses.
