Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


The Tamao oxidation of alkoxysilanes was investigated computationally to determine the role of fluoride. a key additive. in this reaction. A sequence of fluoride equilibria as well as possible transition states. mediated by basic and neutral peroxide, respectively, were examined, and a potential energy surface was calculated which was consistent with the typical synthetic methods required for the conversion of alkoxysilanes to alcohols.
