A number of 3-triorganosilyl- and 3-trimethylgermyl-2,5-dihydrofurans have been prepared by the cyclization of 2-triorganosilyl(germyl)-2-butene-1,4-diols obtained from the hydrosilylation and hydrogermylation products of 1,4-bis(trimethylsiloxy)-2-butyne. It has been found that the liquid-phase heterogeneous hydrogenation of these compounds over palladium catalysts is accompanied by simultaneous isomerization and disproportionation to give the corresponding 3-(4,5-dihydrofuryl)-, 3-tetrahydrofuryl- and 3-furyl- derivatives.
