Buttressing Effects on Haloarene Deprotonation: A Merely Kinetic or Also Thermodynamic Phenomenon?

(2,6-Dichlorophenyl)- and (2,6-dibromophenyl)trialkylsilanes undergo hydrogen/metal interconversion preferentially at the 4- rather than 3-position. However, the organometallic species generated by such a \"meta metalation\" are thermodynamically less stable (i.e., more basic) than those that would result from an ordinary \"ortho metalation\". This was demonstrated by equilibration expts. based on permutational halogen/metal interconversion. A new buttressing effect can explain the unprecedented regioselectivity. It is supported by X-ray structures that reveal marked deformations of the benzene ring in halophenylsilanes. [on SciFinder (R)]
