|Title:||Chemistry of base-stabilized group 14 element (I) dimers||Authors:||Yeong, Crystal Huixian||Keywords:||DRNTU::Science::Chemistry||Issue Date:||2014||Source:||Yeong, C. H. (2014). Chemistry of base-stabilized group 14 element(I) dimers. Doctoral thesis, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore.||Abstract:||This thesis describes the reactivity studies of an amidinate-stabilized silicon(I) dimer [LSi:-Si:L] (L = PhC(NtBu)2). The synthesis, characterization and theoretical studies of the first examples of heavier group 14 cyclobutadiene analogues which comprise of heavier group 14 elements, silicon, germanium and tin, in the four-membered skeleton are also described. Additionally, the synthesis and reactivity of an amidinate-stabilized silyliumylidene cation [LSi(DMAP)]OTf is described. Lastly, the synthesis and characterization of a germanium(I) dimer and a germylidenide anion stabilized by the 2-imino-5,6-methylenedioxylphenyl ligand is described.||URI:||https://hdl.handle.net/10356/55296||DOI:||10.32657/10356/55296||Fulltext Permission:||open||Fulltext Availability:||With Fulltext|
