Summary

A 9:1 molar ratio mixture of 1,1,2,2-tetrachloromethyldisilane 2 plus pentamethyldisilane 4 reacted with tetrakis(dimethylamino)ethylene (TDAE) to yield, in dimethoxyethane (DME), a crystal mixture of [Si3Me3Cl6]·[TDAE]*+ (5a) plus [Si3Me2Cl7]-[TDAE]*+ (5b). The molecular structure of 5b was determined. Conversely, from donor-substituted disilanes such as 1,1,2-tris(diethylamino)-2-chloro-dimethyldisilane 6 or the N,N'-diphenylethylenediamino-substituted dimethyldisilane 7, electron transfer occurs toward tetracyanoethylene (TCNE).
