Treatment of chlorobis(methyldiphenylsilyl)methyllithium with various Grignard reagents and CuCN·2LiCl afforded 1,1-disilylalkylcopper species. Subsequent aerobic oxidation provided various acylsilanes in good yields. The preparation of 1-cyano-1-silylalkylcopper species via consecutive double 1,2-migration of alkyl and cyano groups is described.
