Synthesis of 1,1-disilanes
A convenient method for the synthesis of 1,1-diboronates from the corresponding N-tosylhydrazones is also applicable to 1-silyl-1-boron compounds. Derivatization and consecutive Pd-catalyzed cross-coupling reactions with 1,1-boronates were also explored, demonstrating the synthetic potential of 1,1-diboronates.
