The coordination chemistry of the amidinate-stabilized silicon(I) dimer toward group 9 metal complexes is described. The reaction of [LSi:]2 (1, L = PhC(NtBu)2) with [Ir(cod)Cl]2 (cod = 1,5-cyclooctadiene) in toluene at ambient temperature afforded the base-stabilized silicon(I) dimer-iridium complex [LSi{Ir(cod)-μ-Cl-Ir(cod)}SiL][(cod)IrCl2] (2). In contrast, the reaction of 1 with [Rh(cod)Cl]2 in toluene at ambient temperature afforded a mixture of the amidinate-stabilized silicon(I) dimer…
