Title
Combining the chemistries of silylene and sulfur-nitrogen compounds - $SiS_{2}N_{2}$ and related systems
Author
Abstract
 A new class of inorganic systems is introduced in which a silylene fragment is combined with a sulfur-nitrogen fragment. The properties of the resulting sulfur-nitrogen silylenes have been studied using quantum chemical calculations, focussing on isodesmic reaction energies, dimerization, electro- and nucleophilicity, and the singlettriplet energy gapa number of as yet unsuccessful attempts to prepare the compounds is also reported. These new systems are found to be stable silylenes in which the sulfur-nitrogen fragment stabilizes both the singlet and the triplet states through extensive electron delocalization.
