The chloro functionality of allyldichlorosilane (HSiCl2(C3H5)) and allyldichloromethylsilane (MeSiCl2(C3H5)) were replaced by alkynyl groups and new compounds, allyldialkynylsilane 1 and allyldialkynylmethylsilane 2, were obtained. These silanes, which served as starting materials for the onward reactions, were purified by fractional distillation. They were further subjected to hydroboration with 9-BBN (9-borabicyclo[3.3.1]nonane) and were converted into 1-silacyclohex-2-ene derivatives 5 and 6. The competition between C≡C and C=C in the reaction was studied. The hydroborating reagent 9-BBN was expected to prefer terminal C=C bonds and to leave C≡C bond untouched. This hypothesis of preferable hydroboration was experimentally proved, and hence, 1-silacyclohex-2-ene derivatives were obtained in reasonably pure form. The reaction of allyldialkynylsilane 2 with one equivalent of 9-BBN affords 1-silacyclohex-2-ene bearing Si-C≡C-function, ready to be hydroborated further with one equivalent of 9-BBN. The obtained compound bears two C-B bonds, which are attractive synthones for further transformations. This study aims to highlight the chemistry of C-B and Si-H functional groups. All new compounds obtained were colorless air and moisture sensitive oils, and they were studied by multinuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (1H, 13C, 11B, 29Si NMR) in solution. <alternatives> [...] </alternatives>
