Summary

Based on a screening study with a purposeful selection of substrate molecules, the versatile reactivity of silicon atoms under matrix conditions (argon, 10 K) has been studied. The observations can be turned into a general scheme unraveling the characteristic features which govern the wide-ranging potential behavior of silicon atoms.
