Abstract

original image

Strained cages: UV-photoelectron spectroscopy studies of tetrakis(trimethylsilyl)tetrahedrane and its pentafluorophenyl derivative (see figure) demonstrate the effectiveness of the neutral hyperconjugation in the latter, which was initially proposed on the basis of electronic spectra and computational data.
