Computational Study of Ways by Which exo-Silatranes Might Be Prepared.

exo-Silatranes involve cage structures where the nitrogen lone pair points away from the cage rather than into it. This distinguishes them from the well-established endo-silatranes. exo-Silatranes have not been observed experimentally, consistent with a significant benefit to silicon-nitrogen interactions inside the cages as suggested for endo-silatranes… CONTINUE READING
