New methods for metal–carbon bond formation; reactions of (OC) 5 MnSiMe 3 with cyclic ethers Academic Article uri icon


  • When (OC)5MnSiMe3 (1) is treated with cyclic ethers (ring size ≤ 5), ring opening and metal-carbon bond formation occurs, under 200 lb in-2 of CO, high yields of products (OC)5Mn(COR) can be obtained.
