The creation of unpaired electrons in due course results from the C[DOUBLE BOND]C bond stretching until breaking. The blue box in the lower left corner marks the interval of the C[DOUBLE BOND]C bond lengths characteristic for sp2 nanocarbons according to the relevant numbers of unpaired electrons. The low amount of the latter explain a partial radicalization of the species. The longer length of Si[DOUBLE BOND]Si bonds and larger relevant numbers of unpaired electrons reveal a complete radicalization of the sp2 nanosilicons.
