Abstract: A variety of aldehydes and ketones were transformed to their corresponding cyanohydrin silyl ethers in good to excellent yields in the presence of 1-5 mol% of tris(2,4,6-trimethoxyphenyl)phosphine (TTMPP). Cyanohydrin carbonates were also readily prepared using 5-10 mol% of TTMPP as an organocatalyst.
Keywords: organocatalysis; cyanosilylaton; cyanohydrin carbonate; phosphines; cyanation
