Abstract Chlorination of 1,2,5-trimethyl-1-silacyclopentane by benzoyl peroxide/carbon tetrachloride proceeds with 100% retention of configuration at silicon, but reaction with triphenylmethyl chloride in benzene gives two-thirds retention and one-third inversion. 1-Chloro-1,2,5-trimethyl-1-silacyclopentane isomerizes slowly in nonpolar solvents, but salts strongly enhance the rate of isomerization. Displacement of chloride by fluoride and by methoxide is nonstereospecific but, in the case of the latter, is stereoselective. Displacement of chloride by acetate proceeds with predominant inversion of configuration at silicon. The kinetics of the isomerization of 1-acetoxy-1,2,5-trimethyl-1-silacyclopentane by methoxide have been studied.
