Reduction of allylpalladium(II)chloride dimer by formation of allyloxysilanes

Scott E Denmark, Russell C. Smith

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The reduction of allylpalladium(II)chloride dimer (APC) to a Pd(0) species can be effected by reaction with alkali metal silanolates. The reduction is extremely rapid in the presence of chelating bisphosphine ligands and for a variety of silanolates.
