The reaction of the arylchlorosilylene-NHC adduct ArSi(NHC)Cl [Ar=2,6-Trip2 -C6 H3 ; NHC=(MeC)2 (NMe)2 C] 1 with one molar equiv of LiPH2 (.) dme (dme=1,2-dimethoxyethane) affords the first 1,2-dihydrophosphasilene adduct 2 (ArSi(NHC)(H)PH). The latter is labile in solution and can undergo head-to-tail dimerization to give [ArSi(H)PH]2 3 and "free" NHC.(More)
Taking advantage of two N-heterocyclic carbenes (NHCs), novel silyliumylidene ions 1a and 1b are prepared by a facile one-pot reaction of the corresponding dichlorosilanes with three equivalents of NHCs. For the first time, a C–H insertion reaction of phenylacetylene by a novel silyliumylidene ion is reported. The treatment of m-terphenyl substituted(More)
An in depth study of the reactivity of an N-heterocyclic carbene (NHC)-stabilized silylene monohydride with alkynes is reported. The reaction of silylene monohydride 1, tBu3 Si(H)Si←NHC, with diphenylacetylene afforded silole 2, tBu3 Si(H)Si(C4 Ph4 ). The density functional theory (DFT) calculations for the reaction mechanism of the [2+2+1] cycloaddition(More)
Unprecedented E/Z isomerisation of a Si[double bond, length as m-dash]P bond was observed by temperature dependent NMR spectroscopy. DFT calculations showed that the coordination of phosphasilene to tungsten lowered the rotational barrier from 19.1 to 14.2 kcal mol(-1). The thermodynamically more stable phosphinosilylene tungsten complex is formed at(More)
The ditopic germanium complex FGe(NIPr)2 Ge[BF4 ] (3[BF4 ]; IPr=1,3-bis(2,6-diisopropylphenyl)imidazolin-2-ylidene) is prepared by the reaction of the amino(imino)germylene (Me3 Si)2 NGeNIPr (1) with BF3 ⋅OEt2 . This monocation is converted into the germylene-germyliumylidene 3[BAr(F) 4 ] [Ar(F) =3,5-(CF3 )2 -C6 H3 ] by treatment with Na[BAr(F) 4 ]. The(More)
The possible synthesis of hexasilabenzene was studied as the consecutive reaction of three disilyne units in order to find a suitable substituent. Although there is a reaction pathway which leads to hexasilabenzene in the case of hydrogen (A) and phenyl (B) groups, and it is thermodynamically and kinetically favourable, the reaction can easily proceed(More)
An acyl-functionalized phosphasilene, LSi(COtBu)=P(SiMe3) (L = PhC(NtBu)2) was synthesized on a new route by the addition of tBuCOCl to the phosphinosilylene LSiP(SiMe3)2 and subsequent Me3SiCl elimination. DFT studies elucidated its molecular structure, the influence of the acyl group on UV/Vis transitions, and revealed the mechanism. The intermediate(More)
The silicon analogues of an acylium ion, namely, sila-acylium ions 2a and 2b [RSi(O)(NHC)2]Cl stabilized by two N-heterocyclic carbenes (NHC = 1,3,4,5-tetramethylimidazol-2-ylidene), and having chloride as a countercation were successfully synthesized by the reduction of CO2 using the donor stabilized silyliumylidene cations 1a and 1b [RSi(NHC)2]Cl (1a, 2a;(More)
Attosecond spectroscopic techniques have made it possible to measure differences in transport times for photoelectrons from localized core levels and delocalized valence bands in solids. We report the application of attosecond pulse trains to directly and unambiguously measure the difference in lifetimes between photoelectrons born into free electron-like(More)
Aluminum chalcogenides are mostly encountered in the form of bulk aluminum oxides that are structurally diverse but typically consist of networks with high lattice energy in which the chalcogen atoms bridge the metal centres. This makes their molecular congeners difficult to synthesize because of a pronounced tendency for oligomerization. Here we describe(More)
