ketone-silyl enol ether: self condensation ?
« on: November 17, 2020, 08:31:09 AM »
I know that if I treat a ketone like cyclohexanone with SiMe3Cl I'll get a sylil enol ether.

Now is this process  quantitative?
Or in the solution I have some cyclohexanone and some silyl enol ether....    ??  Because in this case I also get the self condensation product in a crossed aldol condensation


(I think that with silyl enol ether the self condensation should be minimal because looking to wikipedia I've seen that in order to avoid a self condensation of an aldehyde I should convert  it  in a silyl enol ether! )

thanks
