Cyclic Amino(Carboranyl) Silylene: Synthesis, Structure and Reactivity

Abstract

A carbene-stabilized cyclic amino(carboranyl) silylene has been prepared from the reaction of cyclic amino(carboranyl) chlorosilane with N-heterocyclic carbene via HCl elimination. Its structure was characterized by single-crystal X-ray analyses and DFT calculations. It is a very strong σ donor and relatively poor π acceptor. It can form Lewis acid-base adduct with borane and undergo cycloaddition reactions with unsaturated molecules such as diphenylacetylene and benzophenone.
