SileneOrganometallic Complexes The Direct Synthesis of a SileneOrganometallic
 

Summary: Silene­Organometallic Complexes
The Direct Synthesis of a Silene­Organometallic
Complex**

Dedicated to Professor Henry F. Schaefer III
on the occasion of his 60th birthday
The first stable compounds with doubly bonded silicon atoms
were reported in 1981 and since then vast progress has been
made in this field,[1]
including the synthesis of several
transition-metal complexes of silenes and disilenes such as
compounds 1­4.[2­6]
However, while numerous olefin­orga-
nometallic complexes were synthesized directly from the
corresponding olefins, all known silene complexes were
synthesized by indirect processes. For example, 1,[3]
2a,[4]
2b,[5]
