Salt-elimination reactions led to the formation of highly strained bora- and silavanadoarenophanes, which undergo different types of ring-opening reactions with low-valent platinum complexes. Whereas the boron-bridged derivative opened stoichiometrically by cleavage of the VCarene bond, the silavanadoarenophane reacted at the SiCipso bond to afford a polymer containing spin-active metal centers in the main chain (see scheme).
