Reactions of Diphenyl(trimethylsilyl)phosphane with Alkyl(pentacarbonyl)manganese; Synthesis of the Ylide Complexes and a New Driving Force for CO Insertion Academic Article uri icon


  • Promotion of CO‐insertion into metal‐alkyl bonds is of current interest. A novel possibility is provided by the use of the silylphosphane 1: The CO‐insertion is assisted by formation of the SiO bond. This reaction opens up access to the ylide complexes 3.
