Reaction of LSi-SiL (1) (L = PhC(NtBu)(2)) with diphenyl alkyne gave the first example of a room temperature stable 1,4-disilabenzene. The compound was characterized by means of single crystal X-ray diffraction studies. NICS (nucleus independent chemical shift) calculations showed that the compound has some aromatic character.

The formation of a 1,4-disilabenzene and its isomerization into a disilabenzvalene derivative.
A stable 1,4-disilabenzene was generated from the reaction of a stable disilyne with 3-hexyne, which was structurally characterized by a single-crystal X-ray diffraction analysis.

Synthesis and Characterization of an Amidinate-Stabilized Bisgermylene Oxide and Sulfide
The synthesis and characterization of the amidinate-stabilized bisgermylene oxide and sulfide [L2Ge−E−GeL2] (E = O (2), S (3); L2 = ButC(NAr)2, Ar = 2,6-Pri2C6H3) are described. Compound 2 was
A One-Step Germole to Silole Transformation and a Stable Isomer of a Disilabenzene.
An unusual germole-to-silole transformation is described. As key intermediates hetero-fulvenes are formed which rearrange to more stable bicyclic carbene analogues. The so-formed germylenes undergo a
Activation of alkynes by an α-diimine-stabilized Al-Al-bonded compound: insertion into the Al-Al bond or cycloaddition to AlN2C2 rings.
Reaction of 1 with phenylacetylene proceeds through cycloaddition of alkynes to the AlN2C2 rings to produce bis(bicyclic) products (3a and 3b).
Reactions of Amidinate-Supported Silylene with Organoboron Dihalides.
The silicon atom in LSiCl or LSiMes inserts into the B-X bond of RBX2, which is followed by the migration of the amidinate ligand and the halide atom and a silylene-borane adduct LClSi → BPhCl2 was obtained as an intermediate in the formation of compound 2.
Heavier element-containing aromatics of [4n+2]-electron systems.
This review of recent developments of the [4n+2]-electron systems of heavier heterocycles involving group 13-15 elements is presented and the synthesis, spectroscopic data, structural parameters, computational data, and reactivity are introduced.
Synthesis and characterization of an amidinate-stabilized cis-1,2-disilylenylethene [cis-LSi{C(Ph)=C(H)}SiL] and a singlet delocalized biradicaloid [LSi(μ(2)-C(2)Ph(2))(2)SiL].
X-ray crystallography and DFT calculations of 3 show that the singlet biradicals are stabilized by the amidinate ligand and the delocalization within the "Si(μ(2)-C(2)Ph(2))( 2)Si" six-membered ring.
Molecular tailoring: a possible synthetic route to hexasilabenzene.
The possible synthesis of hexasilabenzene was studied as the consecutive reaction of three disilyne units in order to find a suitable substituent, and the terphenyl group (C) seems to be a perfect substituant because the reaction pathway leading to substituted hexasILabenzenes consists of thermodynamically favourable steps and small activation barriers, and further reaction is hindered by the bulky substituents.

Isolable silyl and germyl radicals lacking conjugation with pi-bonds: synthesis, characterization, and reactivity.
The ESR spectra of 1 and 2 showed strong signals with characteristic satellites due to the coupling with the 29Si and 73Ge nuclei, and small values of the hyperfine coupling constants a(29Si) and a(73Ge) clearly indicate the pi-character of both radicals, corresponding to a planar geometry and sp2 hybridization of the radical centers.
