A Cu(I)-catalyzed cross-coupling reaction of terminal alkynes and bis(trimethylsilyl)diazomethane is reported. Mechanistically, the reaction is based on the recently developed cross-coupling reactions through metal-carbene migratory insertion. This reaction provides an efficient synthetic method for 1,1-disilyl allenes. Subsequent transformations of 1,1-disilyl allenes are investigated, which show diverse reactivities of these allenes.
