Abstract

Phenyl trimethylsilyl selenide (1) reacted with tetrahydrofurans 2 in dichloromethane in the presence of a catalytic amount of zinc iodide to give ring opened silyl ethers of δ-phenylseleno alcohols 3 in good yields. It was found that well-dried zinc iodide catalyzed the reaction less effectively than moisturized zinc iodide, prepared by treatment of the reagent with water-saturated hexane.
