Not so alkyne like: A dialkyldisilyne (left, green) that can be isolated is synthesized and fully characterized. It coordinates to palladium and platinum in a η2-fashion giving complexes (red) with a trans-bent geometry, in contrast to η2-alkyne complexes. The complexes showed significant metallacycle character.
