An Approach to Dendritic Oligosilanes: Controlling the Conformation through Ring Formation
datasetposted on 02.04.2020 by C. Krempner, H. Reinke
Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
The synthesis, solid-state structure, and UV spectroscopic properties of the first-generation single-core oligosilane dendrimer MeSi[SiMe2Si(SiMe3)2Me]2[SiMe2Si(SiMe3)3] (5) and the tethered analogue (CH2)4[Si(SiMe3)2SiMe2]2Si[SiMe2Si(SiMe3)3]Me (4) are reported. UV spectroscopic measurements in solution and in the solid state (diffuse reflectance) show the absorption maximum of tetramethylene-tethered 4 to be shifted to wavelengths longer than those of 5, the dendrimers MeSi[SiMe2Si(SiMe3)3]3 (6) and MeSi[SiMe2Si(SiMe3)2Me]3 (7), and even that of the linear heptasilane Si7Me16. This can be explained by the results of the X-ray analysis of 4 and 5, which reveal for 4 the presence of an A−D−A−D conformer, which is optimal for σ-conjugation, whereas in 5 only D−D−O−D conformers have been found.
