Alkyne Addition and Insertion Reactions of [(Me3 Si)3 Si]2 Ge⋅PMe3.


Silylated germylene-PMe3 adducts exchange their phosphane moiety smoothly for an N-heterocyclic carbene or isocyanide species to form their respective base adducts. Reaction of the silylated germylene-PMe3 adducts with monosubstituted alkynes produce germylene adducts with the alkyne inserted into a Ge-Si bond. A computational study of this process provides… (More)
