General Introduction

Vinylsilanes have been widely recognized as intermediates for many applications, which are described in the applications part of this section. The great synthetic utility of vinylsilanes is critically dependent on their availability. Fortunately, there are many effective preparative routes, several being highly stereoselective. Here, five main synthetic pathways to vinylsilanes are described: (1) the silylation of alkenylmetal compounds, (2) the coupling reaction of haloalkenes with silylmetal species, (3) the reaction of carbonyl compounds with silylmetal species, (4) hydrometalation or hydrogenation of alkynylsilanes, and (5) hydrosilylation of alkynes and related addition reactions. Other miscellaneous methods are also given.
