Dr. Yun Xiong, Dr. Shenglai Yao and Prof. Dr. Matthias Driess Chemical Tricks To Stabilize Silanones and Their Heavier Homologues with EO Bonds (E=Si–Pb): From Elusive Species to Isolable Building Blocks Angewandte Chemie International Edition 52
Getting heavy: Recent progress in stable compounds with EO bonds (E=Si, Ge, Sn, Pb) is presented. The synthesis of a series of silanone complexes and the first stable “genuine” germanone are the most noteworthy developments in the field of heavier ketone analogues. The structural and spectroscopic data obtained on these new species and their reactivity have greatly enriched the chemical knowledge on heavier ketones.
