MNDO, AM1 and PM3 semiempirical models have been employed to study the bonding and structure of 1-fluorosilatrane using full geometry optimization. Heats of formations were calculated at different SiN distances between 200 pm and 360 pm. Two minima were found on the energy profile when C3 symmetry was retained. A third local energy minimum has been found, in a non-symmetrical conformation.
