Abstract

original image

A specialty of silicon: A stable dimeric silaisonitrile (ArNSi:)2 (see picture; Ar=2,6-bis(2,4,6-triisopropylphenyl)phenyl) was prepared by the reduction of dichlorosilaimine IPrCl2Si[DOUBLE BOND]NAr with KC8. The dimer is the first base-free disilylene with two-coordinate silicon atoms; reaction with trimethylsilyl azide affords the first bis(silaimine) (ArNSi[DOUBLE BOND]NSiMe3)2 with three-coordinate silicon atoms.
