Abstract / Description of output

Si[DOUBLE BOND]Si activation: Reversible formation of a donor–acceptor complex between an N-heterocyclic carbene and a cyclotrisilene with carbon-based substituents shifts the electron density of the double bond and thus induces strong polarization, as shown by the significantly pyramidal tricoordinate silicon atom.
