Abstract

Noteworthy developments of the Peterson olefination reaction are reviewed. Evidence for both concerted and stepwise mechanisms for the Peterson olefination reaction is presented. The strong affinity of the oxygen anion for the silyl moiety is emphasised when the Peterson olefination reaction takes preference over both the Julia and Wittig reactions in the presence of S- and P-stabilised silyl carbanions. Cerium-mediated Peterson methylenation reactions are discussed.
