The incorporation of carbene (R2C:) and silylene (R2Si:) functionalities in the same molecule is a challenging task owing to their inherent reactivity. The synthesis of a stable compound (Si−NHC) featuring an unmasked carbene as well as a silylene is accomplished for the first time by installing a silylene functionality on the backbone of a 1,3-imidazolium-derived NHC. The Si−NHC compound offers significant potential as a ligand in the design of new catalysts, and as a building block for the preparation of new molecules and materials. More information can be found in the Full Paper by R. S. Ghadwal et al. (DOI: 10.1002/chem.201703530).
