Abstract

Transition-metal complexes containing low-valent silicon and germanium ligands have attracted much attention because of their unique bonding modes as well as their possible intermediacy in various transformation reactions of organosilicon and -germanium compounds mediated by transition metals. This article describes (1) some reactions involving silylene and germylene complexes, in particular the fast intramolecular scrambling of substituents on the silicon atoms in silyl(silylene) iron complexes, and (2) the synthesis, structures, and properties of some new types of such complexes; namely, donor-stabilized bis(silylene), (silylene) (germylene), and bis(germylene) complexes.
