(tBu,Si),Si, : The First Molecular Silicon Compound with a Si, Tetrahedron**
By Nils Wiberg,* Christian M . M . Finger,
and Kurt Polborn
Dedicated to Professor Heinrich Noth
on the occasion of his 65th birthday
In a recently published review on the cluster chemistry of
the heavier elements in the fourth main group (Si, Ge, Sn),
which is still in its infancy, S. Masamune et al. state in their
concluding remarks that the syntheses of tetrasilatetrahedrane 1, disilyne 2, and 1,1,l-pentasilapropellane3 are currently the greatest challenges for silicon chemists.”] We report here on our achievement of one of these goals-the
synthesis of a molecular silicon compound with a Si, tetrahedron (see
with regard to the question of a disilyne).
1 (here R = SitBu,)
a triprismo-hexagermane with CH(SiMe,), substituents on
the germanium atoms has also been generated.c6’) Since compounds with a tetrahedral framework constructed of atoms
of one element exist for most of the elements near silicon in
the periodic table, boron,”’ aluminum,[*]
carbon,[”] phosphorus (P,), and arsenic (As,), it is especially
puzzling that neither a tetrahedra-tetrasilane nor a tetrahedro-germane have been synthesized previously.
A tetrahedro-tetrasilane Si,R, should be more stable than
either a hexahedro-octasilane or a triprismo-hexasilane if it
has sterically demanding R groups (see
we chose to synthesize the target tetrahedron molecule 1 with
tri-tert-butylsilyl groups (R = SitBu,, “supersilyl”) (for
more on the name supersilyl see comment[81). Since Siztetrahedra are anionic components in alkaline and alkaline
earth silicides such as NaSi, KSi, and BaSi, , it was reasonable to try to give these “molecular freedom” (e.g.
Siz- + 4 R X --* Si,R, + 4X-). All attempts at derivatization have failed thus far (one reason for this is the high
reducing ability of the silicides; see comment[”, 12]).
Another imaginable approach, the dehalogenation of the
previously unknown tBu,Si-SiCI, with sodium, did not
provide access to 1, although the analogous reaction of the
less bulky tBuMe,Si-SiBr, led to hexahedro-octasilane (Si
substituents = SiMe,tBu).[’] Treatment of tBu,Si-SiC1,
with sodium in benzene at 80 “C did not give 1 ; instead NaCl
formation and hydrogen uptake led to a number of products
including 1,2-bis(supersilyl)disilane 4,which can be brominated easily to provide tetrabromobis(supersily1)disilane 5,
and the very interesting tris(supersily1)cyclotrisilane 6.[’

previously mentioned approach.
Compound 1 forms intensely yellow-orange needles,
which change color (to deep-red) reversibly upon heating
and do not melt below 350°C. The crystals display high
thermo- and photostability and are stable to water and air.
Compound 1 cannot be reduced by sodium in benzene in the
presence of [18]crown-6 but reacts with oxidants like tetracyanoethylene and Br,.

threefold symmetry axes. The superdisilane molecules fill the
large gaps between the almost sphere-shaped molecules of 1

The superdisilane molecules tBu,Si-SitBu, in crystals 1a
display almost the same Si-Si distance (268.5 pm) as in crystals containing only superdisilane. As in the pure crystal
of superdisilane,[20] in l a the two tBu,Si halves are not
staggered but twisted out of this symmetric position
by 5.2".

atoms ofC,D, haveeffective radii; all molecules are found on threefold symmetry axes).
As expected, the units of 1 in crystal 1a (Fig. 2) are constructed of Si, tetrahedra, which have two different Si-Si
distances (tetrahedron 1 : 233.0 and 231.5 pm; tetrahedron
IA: 232.6 and 234.1 pm) as a consequence of the crystal
symmetry. These distances are somewhat longer than those
calculated for unsubstituted tetrahedro-tetrasilane (231.4 pm;
for comparison, in cyclotrisilanes: Si-Si distance in
[(tBuCH,),Si], 239.1 pm, in (tBu,Si), 251.1 pm;['81 see also
comment [I9]). The exocyclic Si-Si separations are somewhat
longer than normal Si-Si single bonds as a result of the bulk
of the supersilyl groups (tetrahedron 1: 235.5 and 236.5 pm;

Experimental Procedure
To a solution of 5 (0.428 g, 0.553 mmol) in T H F (50 mL) at -20°C was added
dropwise a 0 . 5 6 ~solution of tBu,SiNa (2.00mL, 1.12 mmol). The reaction
mixture was allowed to warm to room temperature, the T H F removed under
vacuum, the residue dissolved in pentane (70 mL), the precipitated NaBr filtered off, and the pentane removed by distillation. The crude product was
recrystallized a number of times from tBuOMe to provide 0.144 g (0.158 mmol,

(C,F,NGaMe), and (C,F,NInMe), : The First
Gallium-Nitrogen and Indium-Nitrogen
Compounds with Cubane Structures**
By Thomas Belgardt, Herbert U! Roesky,*
Mathias Noltemeyer, and Hans-Georg Schmidt
Dedicated to Professor Hans Bock
on the occasion of his 65th birthday
Compounds with heterocubane frameworks have been
known for a long time for main group elements.[lJThe first
aluminum-nitrogen compound with cubane structure (PhNAlPh), was prepared in 1962 and structurally characterized ten years later.''' In the meantime several more compounds of this type have been de~cribed.1~'
In contrast, there
are no indications of analogous gallium-nitrogen and indium-nitrogen compounds. Starting materials for the synthesis of the aluminum-nitrogen compounds with a central cubic AI,N, unit are the aminoalanes (RNHAlR;),, which
form cubanes through intermolecular reactions. Power et al.
have transferred these reactions to the corresponding aminogallanes and have thus observed that under C-H activation
an intramolecular elimination of hydrocarbons takes
place.[3b1Corresponding reactions of the aminoindanes are
not known. In order to prevent a C-H activation, we have
now treated GaMe, and InMe, each with pentafluoroaniline
(Scheme 1).

In. R
= C,F,
The aminometallanes 1 and 3 are obtained as intermediates, which precipitate in the form of needlelike crystals in
high yield. The compounds 2 and 4, the first gallium-nitrogen and indium-nitrogen compounds with cubane frameworks, respectively, can be prepared by heating the appropriate aminometallanes without solvent, and subsequent
recrystallization of the products from n-hexane. Compound
2 belongs to the class of iminogallanes (RNGaR),, for
which to our knowledge only one compound with a complex
4 is the first struccage structure is k n o ~ n . [Compound
turally characterized iminoindane (RNInR'), .
The crystal structure of 2 is shown in Figure I.['] The
framework consists of fourfold coordinated Ga and N
atoms, which together form a regular cube (angles at Ga and
N lie between 85.9(2) and 94.0(2)"). However, the angles here
deviate significantly from the 90" angle of a perfect cube, in
contrast to (PhAlNPh),, for which angles of almost 90" are
observed. The Ga-N bond lengths lie between 197.2 and
203.9 pm (mean 200.8(4) pm). Thus, they correspond to the
atomic distances in aminogallanes, for example those of
(Me,GaNHPh), .IJb1 As expected, the distances are somewhat longer than those for iminoalanes with cubane struc['I
