Transmetallation reactions of a lithium disilenide

Author affiliations

Abstract

The first magnesium, copper and zinc disilenides were prepared via transmetallation reactions of a lithium disilenide and structurally characterised. The copper and zinc derivatives show red-shifted UV/vis absorptions due to admixture of metal d-orbitals to the highest occupied molecular orbital.
