Summary

Starting from methylchlorooligosilanes, a great variety of new cyclic and polycyclic silicon chalcogenides is accessible by reaction with either H2S/NEt3 or Li2E (E = S, Se, Te). The results show that products with Si3E2 or Si4E five-membered rings are formed preferentially, or otherwise Si4E2 or Si3E3 six-membered rings are observed. Molecular structures of bicyclo[2.2.1]heptanes, bicyclo[3.3.0]octanes, bicyclo[2.2.2]octanes, adamantanes, noradamantanes, [3.3.3]propellanes and further ring systems are reported. In some cases also the heavier group 14 elements (Ge, Sn, Pb) have been introduced into these ring systems
