Selective rearrangement of epoxysilanes to α-silylaldehydes has been achieved with high efficiency by using exceptionally bulky oxygenophilic methylaluminum bis(4-bromo-2,6-di-<I>tert</I>-butylphenoxide) (MABR) as a stoichiometric reagent. Catalytic use of MABR led to silyl enol ethers in good yield.
