Abstract

An extremely bulky boryl-amide ligand, [N(SiMe3){B(DAB)}] (TBoN; DAB = (DipNCH)2, Dip = C6H3Pri2-2,6), has been utilised in the preparation of the first isolable, two-coordinate acyclic diaminosilylene (ADASi), viz. :Si(TBoN)2. This is shown to have a frontier orbital energy separation, and presumed level of reactivity, intermediate between those of the two classes of previously reported isolable two-coordinate, acyclic silylenes.
