Four independent structures of a pentacoordinate silicon species at different points on the Berry pseudorotation pathway

Author affiliations

Abstract

A new pentacoordinate silicon species containing two chelating ligands has been synthesized. The structures of four independent cations of the same compound correspond to different points on the Berry pseudorotation pathway. The percentage of square planar character varies between 19% and 40%.
