(Chemical Equation Presented) A [3 + 2] cycloaddition reaction between alkynyldimethylsilyl ethers and aryl and alkyl nitrile oxides to produce isoxazolylsilanols has been developed. The cross-coupling reactions of these heterocyclic silanols with a variety of aryl iodides affords 3,4,5-trisubstituted isoxazoles. This sequential process allows for rapid variation of substituents at the 3, 4, and 5 positions of the isoxazole.
