  • 2018 American Chemical Society. Preparation and characterization of a series of pincer-type [P2Si]Co complexes are reported, including a crystal structure of the first base-free cobalt silylene complex. The cationic silylene complex is strongly Lewis acidic and oxophilic, readily coordinating Lewis bases such as triflate and pyridine and heterolytically cleaving the O-H bonds in ethanol and water.
