Progress in the Chemistry of Stable Disilenes
Publisher Summary Remarkable progress of the chemistry of disilenes seems to encourage building up the modern general theory of bonding, structure, and reactions applied for the heavier main-groupExpand
Palladium and platinum η(2) -disilyne complexes bearing an isolable dialkyldisilyne as a ligand.
Not so alkyne like: A dialkyldisilyne that can be isolated is synthesized and fully characterized and showed significant metallacycle character. Expand
Diverse reactions of nitroxide-radical adducts of silylene, germylene, and stannylene
Abstract The results of the thermolysis of 1:2 adducts of stable group-14 element divalent compounds [R2M:, R2=1,1,4,4-tetrakis(trimethylsilyl)butane-1,4-diyl; 1b, M=Ge; 1c, M=Sn] to TEMPO radicalExpand
Synthesis and structures of deoxyribonucleoside analogues for triazole-linked DNA (TLDNA)
Deoxyribonucleoside analogues bearing acetylene group at the pseudo-5′-position and azido group at the pseudo-3′-position have been synthesized by transglycosylation reaction of deoxythymidineExpand
Persistent antimony- and bismuth-centered radicals in solution.
Persistent stibinyl and bismuthinyl radicals are synthesized by facile dissociation of the corresponding dimers with bulky substituents by NMR and UV/Vis spectroscopy and the thermodynamic parameters for the dissociation equilibria are estimated. Expand
A stable silicon-based allene analogue with a formally sp-hybridized silicon atom
The synthesis of a thermally stable, crystalline trisilaallene derivative containing a formally sp-hybridized silicon atom is reported, and it is found that, in contrast to linear carbon allenes, the tristannaallene is significantly bent. Expand
A stable cyclic dialkylgermylene (1) was synthesized by reductive dechlorination of the corresponding dichlorogermane (6) with sodium. Germylene 1 is monomeric both in solution and in the solidExpand
Excited-state reactions of an isolable silylene with aromatic compounds.
The first intermolecular reactions of the excited state of a silicon divalent compound (silylene) with benzene derivatives were discovered and the irradiation of the silylene in the presence of mesitylene afforded the insertion product to a benzylic C-H bond, indicative of the biradical nature of the exciting-state silyene.

Design of chiral bis-phosphoric acid catalyst derived from (R)-3,3'-di(2-hydroxy-3-arylphenyl)binaphthol: catalytic enantioselective Diels-Alder reaction of α,β-unsaturated aldehydes with amidodienes.
The specific character as well as the utility of 1e was further established by comparing its enantioselectivity, absolute stereochemistry, and catalytic efficiency with those of mono-phosphoric acid 2. Expand
