Synthesis and Investigation of Stereochemical and Mechanistic Aspects of some Reactions of Organosilicon CompoundsSummary :
The study involved the synthesis of trimethylsilylcycloalkenes from cycloalkanones and/or cycloalkenes.
The trimethylsilylcycloalkenes were oxidized to novel cyclic cis-- , - -dihydroxysilanes using permaganate cetyltrimethylammonium permanganate a phase transfer catalyzed permanganate oxidation.
A kinetic study on stereoelectronic requirement and effect of ring size on acid catalysed elimination of silanol from the cyclic cis-- , - -dihydroxysilanes to cycloalkanones was carried out. In another study, the mechanism of electrophilic addition of NOCl to trimethylsilylcycloalkenes was investigated in detail by establishing the stereochemistry and regiochemistry of addition, through single crystal X-ray analysis, and from the hydrolysis and reduction products of chloronitroso adducts.
A detailed study was carried out to understand the mechanism of unusual syn addition of NOCl across the double bond and reversal of regiochemistry of addition expected from beta-effect of silicon.Supervisor : Prof. Gopalpur Nagendrappa, Department of Chemistry, Bangalore University, India.
