In contrast to the structurally and configurationally stable alkyl- or aryl-substituted cyclopropyl radical cations, cyclopropyl silyl ethers undergo spontaneous ring opening upon oxidation whereby the endocyclic C-C(O-TMS) bond is cleaved with remarkable selectivity. DFT calculations on 1-trimethylsilyloxybicyclo[4.1.0]heptane show that this selectivity arises from the topology of the potential...
