    • Abstract


      Singlet organosilylenes with a lone pair and an emptyp orbital are isolobal to trivalent borane if a B-H is equated to the lone pair on Si. Using this analogy, a particular isomer of CSi2H2 (24) is predicted to be a stable structure. MNDO calculations on24 and many of its possible isomers suggest that24 is at global minimum on the potential energy surface of CSi2H2.Ab initio calculations using a, minimal STO-3G basis set, on some selected structures also support these results.
