General Introduction

This chapter summarizes developments in silyl sulfide and silyl selenide chemistry, covering both the synthesis and applications of these compounds. Previously published information regarding these compounds is available in Section 4.4.19.

Silyl sulfides and silyl selenides have seen increased use in chemical synthesis. Both improved and novel syntheses of silyl sulfides and silyl selenides are included in this chapter. These compounds can be very versatile reagents, and the reaction products, such as organosulfides and organoselenides, have various functions in chemical synthesis and biological processes. Silyl chalcogen compounds are not naturally occurring, but their intrinsic chemical application is useful and is becoming increasingly developed.
