Cycloaddition of carbonyl compounds and alkynes to (di)silenes and (di)germenes: reactivity and mechanism

, : Cycloaddition of carbonyl compounds and alkynes to (di)silenes and (di)germenes: reactivity and mechanism. Chemical Society Reviews 45(4): 1019-1035

The chemistry of silenes, germenes, disilenes and digermenes has been extensively studied over the last 35 years; however, not much is known about the mechanisms of many of the fundamental reactions of this class of compounds, including cycloadditions. This review describes the current understanding of the reaction pathways for the cycloaddition of carbonyl compounds and alkynes to (di)tetrelenes. The question of whether or not the cycloaddition reactions of (di)tetrelenes follow the Woodward-Hoffman rules, established for alkenes and alkynes, is addressed.

The uncoupling protein 1 (UCP1) is a hallmark of brown adipocytes and pivotal for cold- and diet-induced thermogenesis. Here we report that cyclooxygenase (COX) activity and prostaglandin E(2) (PGE(2)) are crucially involved in induction of UCP1 e...
