Competition between π-arene and lone-pair halogen coordination of silylium ions?


Romanato, P; Duttwyler, S; Linden, A; Baldridge, K K; Siegel, J S (2011). Competition between π-arene and lone-pair halogen coordination of silylium ions? Journal of the American Chemical Society, 133(31):11844-11846.

Abstract

n 2,6-diarylphenylSiR(2) cations, the 2,6-diarylphenyl (m-terphenyl) scaffold blocks incoming nucleophiles and stabilizes the positive charge at silicon by lateral ring interactions. Direct ortho-halogen and π-electron-rich face coordination to silicon has been seen. For a series of cations bearing 2,6-difluoro-2',6'-dimethyl-X(n)-substituted rings, the relative contribution of these two modes of stabilization has been assessed. Direct coordination from an aryl fluoride is found to be comparable to that from the mesityl π-face.
