The concept of “embedding” reactive double bonds by bulky substituents has made it possible to isolate disilenes such as 1 as thermally stable, yellow or orange colored crystalline compounds. Structural and spectroscopic studies indicate many similarities between the (3p–3p)π bonding in disilenes and the (2p-2p)π bonding in olefins.
