Reaction information

*#Reaction file
*Reaction file type CDX 

To a solution of ZrCp2Cl2 (514 mg, 1.76 mmol) in THF (7 mL) under Ar at –80 °C was added dropwise n-butyllithium (1.40 mL of a 2.5 M solution in hexanes, 3.52 mmol). After 10 minutes, ((5-(4-pentenyloxy)-4-pentynyl)oxy)-(tert-butyl) dimethylsilane (280 mg, 1 mmol) was added. The solution was allowed to warm for 2 h, before addition of MeOH (1 mL) and NaHCO3 solution (2 mL). After stirring over night, the reaction mixture was poured into saturated NaHCO3 solution (10 mL) and pentane (15 mL). The aqueous layer was separated and extracted with pentane. The combined organic phases were washed with brine, dried over Na2SO4, filtered and concentrated to provide the title compound as a pale yellow oil (286 mg, 1.00 mmol, 63%)

*Yield (%) 63
*Type of Yield Isolated Product Yield
Further information Compound 210: tert-Butyldimethyl((4-(3-methyltetrahydro-2H-2-pyranyliden)butyl)oxy) silane
