The first highly efficient, stereo- and regioselective palladium-catalyzed hydro-, sila-, and stannastannation of cyclopropenes to give multisubstituted cyclopropylstannanes have been developed. It was shown that the addition across the double bond of cyclopropene is generally controlled by steric factors and proceeds from the least hindered face. The directing effect of alkoxymethyl substituents in the hydrostannation reaction of 3,3-disubstituted cyclopropenes was demonstrated. This methodology represents a powerful and atom-economic approach toward a wide variety of highly substituted cyclopropylstannanes, important building blocks unavailable by other methods.
