Research output: Contribution to JournalArticleAcademicpeer-review


The formation of reactive carbanions in Grignard reagents was discussed. Inter- and/or intramolecular migrations of organotin and organosilicon groups were also studied. Results showed that the high percentage of rearrangement reactions proves that the anionic species are not located on a minor pathway.
