Tetrabutylammonium Fluoride Promoted Regiospecific Reactions of Trimethylsilyl-o-Carborane with Aldehydes
Trimethylsilyl-<I>o</I>-carborane serves as <I>o</I>-carborane carbanion upon fluoride ion promoted reaction with carbonyl compounds. Thus, in the presence of tetrabutylammonium fluoride, trimethylsilyl-<I>o</I>-carborane undergoes facile, unprecedented, carbodesilylation with aromatic and aliphatic aldehydes.
