Diverse Reactivity of a Magnesium Silanide toward Ketones

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The reactivity of a molecular magnesium silanide toward ketones displays a significant variability of outcome, resulting in adduct formation, deprotonation, dearomatisation or deoxygenation, that is dependent on the structure and electronic character of the carbonyl-containing reagent.
