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.

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

Reversible Isomerizations between 1,4-Digermabenzenes and 1,4-Digerma-Dewar-benzenes: Air-Stable Activators for Small Molecules.

Alkyl-substituted Dewar-type-1,4-digermabenzenes can be considered as reversible "air-stable activators" for small molecules such as dihydrogen, carbon dioxide, and acetylene at room temperature.

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).
