A stable heavier group 14 analogue of vinylidene

Abstract:

Vinylidene (H2C=C) is a member of the family of compounds of composition CH (and isomeric with ethyne, HC≡CH), but it has been observed only transiently—with a lifetime in the region of 0.1 ns. Indeed, no simple (non-base-stabilized) compounds of the type R2E=E have been characterized structurally for any of the group 14 elements. Here we show that by employing the bulky and strongly electron-donating boryl ligand (HCDippN)2B (Dipp, 2,6-iPr2C6H3), a simple monomeric digermavinylidene compound...
