Silyl Ether
« on: October 24, 2013, 10:21:59 AM »
Would it be possible to prepare a silyl ether by reaction of TMS-Cl (or other silyl variation) with an (Li,K,Na) alkoxide?

I have not seen a preparation like this anywhere in the lit. I only find standard procedures (DMF, imidazole, alcohol) etc...

I don't see why not. The reason you have not found examples is probably because the alcohols are cheaper and often easier to handle.
My research: Google Scholar and Researchgate
