Re(I)-Catalyzed Hydropropargylation of Silyl Enol Ethers Utilizing Dynamic Interconversion of Vinylidene–Alkenylmetal Intermediates via 1,5-Hydride Transfer

Re­(I)-catalyzed hydropropargylation reaction of silyl enol ethers was realized utilizing dynamic interconversion of vinylidene–alkenylmetal intermediates, where alkenylmetals underwent 1,5-hydride transfer of the α-hydrogen to generate vinylidene intermediates. Furthermore, this process was found to be in an equilibrium.
