Tetrakis(2,6-diethylphenyl)disilene has been synthesized. A molecular analysis of this compound shows that (1) the Si=Si' bond length Is 2.140 Å, (2) each silicon atom and the three atoms directly attached to It are coplanar with a C-Si-C angle of 117.6° and C-Si-Si' angles of 117.6 and 124.8°, and (3) the dihedral angle between the C-Si-C and C'-SI'-C' planes Is 10° (with a twisted Si=Si bond).
