Abstract

(Chemical Equation Presented) Ring around the Ru=Si: Abstraction of a pyridine ligand with BPh3 was used to synthesize the silylene complex 1 (see scheme), which reacts with nitriles at room temperature to give silylisocyanide complex 3 by C-C bond activation. The structure of key intermediate 2 with an η2-Si-H agostic interaction is given along with mechanisms for the formation of 2 and 3.
