    Donor-Stabilized Silylenes The chemistry of donor-stabilized silylenes has developed into one of the most actively studied research areas in molecular silicon chemistry. In their Full Paper on page 296 ff., R. Tacke et al report on the synthesis and characterization of novel transition-metal silylene complexes of FeBr2, CoBr2, NiBr2, ZnBr2, and ZnCl2 with the bis(guanidinato)silicon(II) complex [iPrNC(NiPr2)NiPr]2Si. These compounds represent very rare examples of carbonyl-free silylene complexes of 3d transition metals in the formal oxidation state +2.

    Silylene-Induced Reduction of [Mn2(CO)10]: Formation of a Five-Coordinate Silicon(IV) Complex with an O-Bound [(OC)4Mn=Mn(CO)4]2– Ligand

    Based on a new silylene-induced reduction of [Mn2(CO)10], a five-coordinate silicon(IV) complex was synthesized, which is formally built up by an anionic [(OC)4Mn=Mn(CO)4]2– and a cationic {[iPrNC(NiPr2)NiPr]2Si}2+ fragment, which are connected by a nearly linear Si–O–C moiety. The Si–O and the C–O bond of this Si–O–C moiety display partial double-bond character.

    Graphical abstract: Neutral six-coordinate bis(dithiocarbamato)silicon(iv) complexes with an SiCl2S4 skeleton


    Treatment of SiCl4 with lithium dithiocarbamates of the formula type Li[R2NCS2] (R = Ph, iPr) in a molar ratio of 1 : 2 afforded the respective six-coordinate silicon(IV) complexes [Ph2NCS2]2SiCl2 (3) and [iPr2NCS2]2SiCl2 (4), which were isolated as the solvates 3·MeCN and 4·MeCN. Compounds 3·MeCN and 4·MeCN were structurally characterised by single-crystal X-ray diffraction and multinuclear NMR spectroscopic studies in the solid state and in solution. In this study, dithiocarbamato ligands were implemented in silicon coordination chemistry for the first time. Compounds 3 and 4 represent the first six-coordinate silicon(IV) complexes with an SiCl2S4 skeleton.
