I was wondering if it's possible to isolate a silyl ketene acetal, specifically a TES, TBS or TIPS silyl ketene acetal that is also propargylic. I want to isolate it then do a Ireland Claisen/Diels-Alder cascade. I'm worried that the amine produced in the enolate formation will attack my dienophile. I have found numerous examples in the literature of small MW SKA's, and they are usually isolated by distillation. I'm hoping to isolate a stable SKA derivative of a relatively high boiling ester that I made. My first thought would be some kind of Kughelrohr distillation, but I'm not sure if it would work because I have no sense of what the bp would be. I'm familiar with the conditions for forming it, but isolating a small amount, say 200 mg, seems like I can't find a similar example in the literature.
