A highly enantioselective synthesis of 3-aryl-, vinyl- and alkynyl-2,1-benzoxasiloles was achieved via the sequential activation of an aldehyde and a silane by nickel(0). Initial mechanistic studies revealed the complete switching of an aryl-transfer process from an intermolecular (racemic synthesis: JACS 2014) to an intramolecular (enantioselective synthesis) fashion.

Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 2015, 54, 11666-11671. OPEN ACCESS
A strategy to reactivate frustrated Lewis pairs from classical Lewis adducts by exploiting molecular motions that are responsive to external stimuli has been developed with N-phosphine oxide substituted imidazolylidene (PoxIm). The reactivation conditions were successfully controlled by tuning the strain in the PoxIm–B(C6F5)3 complexes.

Direct amination of allylic alcohols with primary and secondary amines catalyzed by a system made of Ni(cod)2 and DPPF was effectively enhanced by adding nBu4NOAc and molecular sieves, affording the corresponding allylamines. Such remarkable additive effects of nBu4NOAc were elucidated by isolating and characterizing some nickel complexes, manifesting the key role of a charge neutral pentacoordinated η3-allyl acetate complex in the present system.

An η2-aldehyde nickel complex was utilized as an effective activator for an organosilane in order to generate a hypervalent silicate reactant for the first time. This method was successfully applied to the highly efficient syntheses of 3-aryl-, vinyl-, and alkynyl-2,1-benzoxasiloles from benzaldehydes with aryl-, vinyl-, and alkynylsilyl groups at the ortho position. Initial mechanistic studies revealed that an intermolecular aryl transfer process was involved in the reaction mechanism. The formation of an η2-aldehyde complex was directly confirmed by NMR.

M. Ohashi, M. Shibata, and S. Ogoshi
Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 2014, 53, 13578.
A chemoselective C(sp2)–F or C(sp3)–F bond activation of hexafluoropropylene (HFP) was achieved by adopting the proper combination of a Lewis acid co-additive with a ligand which coordinates Pd0. The treatment of [(η2-HFP)Pd(PCy3)2] with B(C6F5)3 allowed a chemoselective C(sp3)–F bond cleavage of HFP to give a cationic perfluoroallypalladium complex. In this complex, the coordination mode of the perfluoroallyl ligand was considered to be of the unique η2-fashion.

In the presence of a Co/dppp catalyst, the [2 + 2] cycloaddition of 1,3-enynes with alkenes that have no allylic hydrogen (eg. styrene) occurred, while aliphatic alkenes underwent 1,4-hydroallylation to 1,3-enynes. From simple substrates, these reactions can provide less-accessible cyclobutenes and allenes with high chemo- and regio-selective manner.

Heating both palladium and nickel η2-TFE complexes supported by PCy3 ligands resulted in C-F bond activation to generate the corresponding trifluorovinyl metal fluorides, trans-(PCy3)2M(F)(CF=CF2). The C-F bond cleavage of TFE on group 10 metal was found to be accelerated even at room temperature by the addition of not only metal halides, such as LiI, MgBr2, and AlCl3, but also boron Lewis acids, such as BF3 and B(C6F5)3, giving the corresponding trifluorovinyl metal complexes.
