Organosilicon compounds are important transmetallation reagents in organic synthesis. Aryltrialkoxysilane have recently emerged as an attractive alternative to traditional organometallic donors, due to their ease of handling, stability toward air/moisture, and/or low toxicity compared to some of the other organometallic reagents (Zn, Mg, Sn, etc.). In this review, the application of aryl trialkoxysilane and alkenyltrialkoxysilane as transmetallation reagent for C-C, C-N, C-S and C-O bonds formation will be disclosed.

Keywords: Organosilicon, transmetallation reagent, organic synthesis, organostannanes, Hiyama Reaction, arylsiloxane, -substituted ketones, aldehydes, esters, nitriles, nitroalkanes, enamide derivatives, trialkoxysilane, trialkoxysilanes
