An organosilicon cage compound containing the sila-adamantane structural unit, which is the building block of crystalline silicon, was synthesized by the Lewis acid‐catalyzed rearrangement reaction of a structural isomer. 
One-Pot Condensation of a Bicyclo[1.1.1]pentasilane through Elimination of Iodotrimethylsilane Assisted by a Lewis Base
Development of efficient bond formation reactions remains important in organic and main-group-element chemistry. Herein, we report the metal-free one-pot condensation reaction of 1-iodo-3-trimethyl...
Two pentasilahousanes fused together.
The organosilicon cluster 1 with two pentasilahousanes fused together was synthesized by the reduction of 1,1,3-trichlorocyclotetrasilane by dimerization and rearrangement of the silicon skeleton.
Synthesis of B,O,N-Doped Adamantanes and Diamantanes by Condensation of Oximes with Boronic Acids.
Condensation of oximes with boronic acids RB(OH)2 or B(OH)3 affords remarkably stable 2,4,10-trioxa-1,5,7-triaza-3-boroadamantanes via an unprecedented multicomponent process. The mechanism involves
An organosilicon cluster with an octasilacuneane core: a missing silicon cage motif.
Analytical and theoretical studies reveal the unique structural and electronic features of this organosilicon cluster.
Rearrangement/Fragmentation Reactions of Oligosilanes with Aluminum Chloride
Reinvestigation of the Lewis acid catalyzed rearrangement of some open-chain permethyloligosilanes with the Al(Fe)Cl3 catalyst system exhibited several cases of additional reactivity: namely, a
Metallocene influence on poly(cyclosilane) structure and properties
Poly(cyclosilane)s, conjugated polymers inspired by crystalline silicon, are synthesized by group 4 metallocene-promoted dehydrocoupling polymerization. Changes in metallocene structure and
Reduction of the dihalocyclopentasilanes. A quest for a homocyclic silylene.
Results indicate that a homocyclic silylene intermediate is generated in the reduction of dibromocyclopentasilane, which is not a good protecting group for hindering the 1,2-silyl migration.
One-step synthesis of a [20]silafullerane with an endohedral chloride ion.
It is shown that discrete Si20 dodecahedra, stabilized by an endohedral guest and valence saturation, are accessible in preparative yields through a chloride-induced disproportionation reaction of hexachlorodisilane in the presence of tri(n-butyl)amine.
Substituted Polyhedral Silicon and Germanium Clusters
Chemistry of polyhedral silicon and germanium clusters is summarized. Historical background, synthesis, structure, physical properties, and reactions are described in detail.


Sigmasigma* transition in anti,cisoid alternating oligosilanes: clear-cut evidence for suppression of conjugation effect by a cisoid turn.
On the basis of the UV absorption spectra of the anti,cisoid alternating oligosilanes, the first experimental clear-cut evidence was presented for the generally accepted idea that the sigma
