Abstract

An ab initio MO study of the mechanisms for the addition of water to disilene (H2Si double bond SiH2) has shown that two bimolecular addition pathways are feasible: one proceeds in a syn-addition manner, while the other proceeds in an anti-addition manner. In the latter pathway, the intracomplex electrophilic attack of a water hydrogen in an initial weak nucleophilic complex between disilene and water occurs with the antarafacial approach according to the Woodward-Hoffmann rules.
