Abstract

© 2015 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim. Contrary to the classical silylene dimerization leading to a disilene structure, phosphine stabilized hydro- and chloro-silylenes (2 a,b) undergo an unique dimerization via silylene insertion into Si£X σ-bonds (X=H, Cl), which is reversible at room temperature. DFT calculations indicate that the insertion reaction proceeds in one step in a concerted manner.
