Abstract

Evidence for the isomerization of 'CH2SiHMe2 to Me3Si' via a 1 ,2-migration of hydrogen has been obtained through pyrolytic studies of 4-(dimethylsilyl)-1-butene which decomposes through loss of the allyl radical to produce 'CH2SiHMe2• Rearrangement to Me3Si' was established by product analysis and trapping with methyl chloride. Kinetic analysis afforded a barrier of ca. 41 kcal/mol in excellent agreement with a calculated barrier of 42.6 kcaljmol achieved with fourth-order perturbation theory corrections (MP4) and addition of zero-point vibrational corrections.
