The two-dimensional silicon backbone structure of planar polysilane and Wo ̈hler siloxene is responsible for their exciting luminescing properties. We have prepared single crystals of siloxene by a topotactic reaction from crystalline CaSi 2. The chemical composition was determined as @Si6H3~OH!3#n . The x-ray crystal structure analysis identifies the so-called Wo ̈hler siloxene as 2D-poly @1,3,5-trihydroxocyclohexasilane #. Polysilane exhibits the same structural properties but with a chemical… Expand
