The present systematic survey of linear disilynes ESi≡SiE with various metal elements E by ab initio and density functional theory calculations has shown that magnesium is highly suited to stabilize the linear conformation of the Si≡Si bond. A synthetically accessible model compound using the magnesium complex of a core-modified porphyrin as a substituent has been designed.
