The crystal structure of 1-phenylcarbasilatrane, [PhSi(OCH2CH2)2(CH2CH2CH2)N], has been determined by X-ray diffraction. The Si ← N dative bond length is 2.291(1) Å, which is 0.13 Å longer than the mean value found in the phenylsilatrane modifications. The conformation and the geometry of the carbasilatrane group is fairly similar to those of the silatrane moiety observed in normal silatranes.
