Summary

The reactivity of silylene 4 towards halogenated alkanes, diphenylacetylenes, chlorosilanes, and a stable, nucleophilic carbene was investigated. Product studies, kinetic measurements, and calculations provide good evidence for 4 being a nucleophilic species due to an intramolecular coordination of the dimethylamino groups to the silicon center.
