Abstract

The hydrogenation of bistrimethylsilylactylene, bis(trimethylsilyl)-1,3-diynes, and related silylalkynes giving the corresponding saturated compounds were achieved by using diimide prepared in situ from p-toluenesulfonyl hydrazide in diglyme. The present method was applicable to the synthesis of saturated 12-and 18-membered oligosilacycloalkanes.
