Plumb radical: The kinetically stable plumbyl radical Pb[SiEt(SiMe3)2]3 (see molecular structure; red Pb, light purple Si, dark purple C) was obtained through oxidation of Pb[SiEt(SiMe3)2]3− ions. With a half-life of about 8.5 hours at room temperature, it cleanly decomposes to elementary lead and Pb[SiEt(SiMe3)2]4.
