A pentacoordinate chlorotrimethylsilane derivative: a very polar snapshot of a Nucleophilic Substitution and its Influence on 29 Si Solid State NMR Properties

Brendler, Erica; Heine, Thomas; Hill, Anthony; Wagler, Jorg


The reaction of l-methyl-2-mercaptoimidazole (methimazole) with chloromethyldimethylchlorosilane (ClCH2)Si(CH3) 2Cl in the presence of triethylamine afforded the l-methylimidazol-2ylthiomethyl-substituted silane 1. The pentacoordinate silicon, atom of 1 is housed within an. almost trigonal bipyramidal coordination sphere, i.e., the three equatorially situated C - Si - C angles sum up to 359.5(3)°. The axial situation of the still Si-bound chlorine atom with its remarkably long Si-Cl separation...[Show more]
